Kingston Head was held on Saturday 21st March 2015 with two divisions at 11:00 and at 14:00. Congratulations to all who competed and assisted in the smooth running of the event, both competitors and all the many volunteers.
The results are now available:-
Ian Weir's Rowing Photography Div 1 and 2 Photos.
The Flyer with details of events to be held in each of the two divisions and entry requirements is available.
The final starting order is now available. Please double check your start number.
Please note that only one Open and one Women's Octuple crew entry is permitted per school/club.
Please ensure you read the Crew Instructions and Course Map - esp. know when to boat, where to marshall, and the navigation instructions.
There will be work carried out on each of the arches of Kingston Railway Bridge until March 2015.
Currently both the Central and Surrey (Kingston) arch are closed, indicated by a red danger sign slung below the arch. 23/1/2015
Look out for Red danger signs slung under the arches, and for red danger buoys placed in the river. Boats going upstream must give way to boats coming downstream (standard river rules of navigation apply), but boats coming downstream must take extra care travelling through the arches.
At least one of the navigation arches will remain open during maintenance work on the bridge. Scaffolding will encapsulate the span/arch where work is taking place. Please navigate slowly and with caution, following signs and directions from safety boats and/or Environment Agency officers.
Kingston Small Boats Head was held on Sat 8th November 2014.

Our past president Alan Spong has passed away, aged 94.
The timing is particularly aposite as the club is planning its 'Row to Remember' Sponsored Row and Alan was one of the last surviving Dunkirk veterans.
A dozen or so Scarlet Blazers attended his funeral to complement the Dogget Coat and Badge uniforms worn by three recent winners (Alan was a member of the Worshipful Company of Watermen and Lightermen of The Thames and was elected their Master in 1980)
