Ponteland Junior Head - 27 March 2021
2020 event cancelled due to COVID-19


This event was originally run by Ponteland High School Rowing Club, but has now been taken under the wing of Tyne ARC. It happens each year in mid to late March, with the exact date depending on tides. And because of tides we tend to be on the same day as a big race on the Thames in London - in 2020 it was due to be on HoRR day, 21 March.

2020 event cancelled

Entries closed on Saturday 14 March at 6.00pm. We received 
48 entries in Division 1, 45 in Division 2 and 38 in Division 3. But ......

In common with all other rowing events up to early summer, including the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, our own Ponteland Junior Head on 21 March was cancelled. This was in the light of the latest government advice and a new position statement issued by British Rowing on Covid-19 as at Monday 16 March.

So watch this space for 2021.
