South Yorkshire Head CANCELLED.

South Yorkshire Head CANCELLED.

'I’m sorry to be the one to spoil everyone’s weekend of rowing but we have reluctantly had to cancel the South Yorkshire Head. The ‘S’ bend in the river round the Newton Farm area was extremely difficult to navigate in a rib with a 15hp motor when the gusts of wind went over 40mph - it would be even worse in a rowing boat whatever the size! Tried our level best to give the event a green light but in the grounds of safety we have cancelled it!
