Rutherford Head was due to run on 5 Dec 2016, but was cancelled two days prior due to high winds forecast. On the day the high and fast top water would have scuppered it anyway. See the picture of @JenBartram giving the forecast on 3 Dec in Look North on BBC TV in the photo above.
Club members came down anyway for a bit of a tidy-up and a BBQ (and a look at the river) on the day. The Aberdeen Angus sausages were very nice! Some photos were taken and are on Flickr
On 13 Dec the club announced it was to rerun the event on 30 Jan 2016, with thanks to the Northern Rowing Council and British Rowing for a very swift agreement to this. 

The club junior squad designed and produced a t-shirt with a very apt motto on the back – see the other photo above. These are to be on sale at the 30 Jan 2016 rerun for £8; they may become a collectors’ item given the cancellation and the motto.

The documents for the cancelled event on 5 Dec 2015 are downloadable below. Those for the Jan 2016 rerun will be at the main Rutherford Head page.
