Alton RC invites flooded rowers to Spring Head

Despite the recent inclement weather forcing the cancellation of a number of events across the country, organisers of the Alton Spring Head are confident that the flood-free Alton Waters will provide some fantastic racing on Saturday 22nd March.

With events for Open, Women’s and Mixed crews as well as colleges and universities, Alton RC’s first Spring Head will take place on a 3,200m course on Alton Water, Suffolk.

“I can confirm that the Alton Spring Head is very much on and flood-free,” said organisers of the inaugural event. “If clubs lose their first choice event on 22nd March 2014, then Alton Spring Head would be more than happy to accommodate.”

Entries for the event close at 5pm on Monday 17th March. For more information, see the Alton Spring Head Poster or visit
