Change to schedule for World Cup Saturday

Spectators travelling to Eton Dorney for the World Rowing Cup will need to make an earlier start tomorrow.

Saturday’s racing will begin half an hour earlier than planned with a 09.00 start. Strengthening wind conditions throughout the day are behind the change.

Fans of GB’s Paralympic rowers will want to be there from the opening stroke tomorrow as the para-rowing finals, followed by medal ceremonies, will kick off the day’s racing.

Britain is the reigning champion in the Paralympic coxed four and 2008 Paralympic champion Tom Aggar looks to be back in form here.

These events will be followed by World Cup semi-finals, finishing the day with C and D Finals. 

Organisers are asking spectators to keep an eye on British Rowing social media (@BritishRowing and @GBRowingTeam) and news outlets for any updated news that the weather demons might cause.

There are a number of tickets still available for tomorrow. Sunday is a sell-out on pre-sales but early arrivers at the course have the chance of getting their hands on the few hundred tickets left to be sold on the day.

Members of the public wishing to purchase tickets on either day should arrive early, gates are open for spectators from 7am.
