Approximately 3750m raced with the tide.
Update 30/12/2020 We wouldn't be able to hold the Quintin Head if London was in Tier 3 or 4. Since we are now in Tier 4 and there seems no realistic prospect of being moved to Tier 2 in time for the race, we have decided to cancel it now rather than wait until further into January. All entry fees are being refunded in full to the credit/debit cards that were used to pay them. We hope to see you in January 2022.
Boat Types : Eights only
Entries for Open & Women in: Senior, J18, J16, J15, Masters B and all older categories
Because of COVID-19 no composite crews will be accepted.
COVID-19 and refunds: The Government’s coronavirus regulations require the tiers to be reviewed at least once every 14 days. The race will be cancelled if London’s exit from Tier 3 has not been announced by the time that entries close on 14th January. If the race is cancelled because of COVID-19 crews will be given a full refund. If the race is cancelled because of adverse conditions crews will be given a partial refund taking account of costs that have already been incurred.
Entry Fees : £100 per crew. Any crew that fails to return its bow number undamaged within a month of the race will be charged £15.
Entries: We aim to open BROE for entries at 6pm on Friday 18th December. BROE will close for entries at 6pm on Thursday 14th January or when 99 completed entries have been accepted, whichever is earlier. An entry is complete only when a full crew has been input, when boating permission has been obtained from the host club and when the entry fee has been paid. Visiting crews must obtain their host club’s permission before entering.
Completed entries will be prioritised according to four categories:
- 1. Clubs based between Hammersmith Bridge and Kew
- 2. Clubs based between Hammersmith Bridge and Putney Bridge
- 3. Other clubs based in London boroughs
- 4. All other clubs, in the order of their distance from the Quintin boathouse
We ask that clubs in categories 3 & 4 do not submit or pay for any entries before 8 January.
For categories 1 & 2, preference may be given to clubs who have provided marshalling launches at previous Quintin Heads.
Completed entries will be accepted in three phases:
- Until 3 January: category 1 entries only
- 4 to 8 January: category 1 & 2 entries, if fewer than 99 crews were accepted in phase A
- 9 to 14 January: all other entries, if fewer than 99 crews were accepted in phases A & B
Payment: Through BROE or by bank transfer to the Quintin Boat Club account 30-92-01 00055969 or by cheque payable to Quintin Boat Club and sent to Malcolm Cook, 15 Seychelle Court, Foxgrove Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 5XU. If you pay by bank transfer please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make it clear which crews you have paid for.
Entry fees will be refunded in full to any crew whose entry is not accepted.
