Fulford Row, 18 Oct, 2016. Fulford Row, 18 Oct, 2016.

This year marks the 950th anniversary of three battles that changed the course of English history; the battles of Fulford, Stamford Bridge and Hastings.

The River Ouse played an important part in the Battle of Fulford. A body of Viking soldiers under King Harald Hardrada rowed up the River Ouse on a very high flood tide and outflanked the English/Saxon forces leading to a Viking victory. The battle took place 20th September 1066, however commemorations are taking place over this coming weekend 17th/18th September. Details at www.battlefieldstrust.com/events.

To mark the role of the river, and rowing, in the battle there will be a commemorative row on the afternoon of Sunday18th September, this will take the form of a procession of boats from Bishopthorpe Palace upstream to Fulford Hall (on the big corner by the Small Boats' Head start) where we will be met by an archaeologist who will give a short talk from the bank on the river’s role in the battle. We will not be disembarking.

Timings for Sunday 18th September, 2016 are:
12:30 Meet at York City Boat House, organise crews.
13:00 Set off from boat house for Bishopthorpe Palace
13:45 Marshall at Bishopthorpe Palace and row upstream to Fulford Hall
14:00 Arrive Fulford Hall
14:10 Depart Fulford Hall and return to boathouse

Obviously the row is subject to river level.

IMPORTANT - this will be an unsupported row, so everyone is responsible for their own competence and safety.
