Tyne Head of the River - 15 February 2020
Tyne Head 2020

Tyne Head is on Saturday 15 February 2020. The poster is downloadable below. It is the same as last year except for the addition of J14 coxed quads (experienced crews only, please).

BROE opened at 6.00pm on Tuesday 14 January, with a healthy entry of 50 boats within half an hour. We do not envisage that there will be the number of entries as there was for Rutherford Head and have a limit at the moment of 90 crews per division. Entries will close at 12 noon on Thursday 6 February. The start order should be out by Tuesday 11 February.

The course map, instructions to crews and coxes, risk assessment and safety plan are downloadable below now. Draft boating, start area and finish area plans will be added as soon as possible (but likely to be similar to the 2019 versions which are still available below). Please also read the generic car parking advice before setting off. Car sharing encouraged!

Tyne Head 2019 in retrospect 

We were very lucky with the weather in 2019. Mild and less wind than forecast, peaking but then tailing off mid-morning just as we were getting a little worried. Nearly 70 boats rowed in each division. Results for both Div 1 and Div 2 are still downloadable below. Lots of pics at Big Al's Facebook page:
