Hammersmith Regatta 2020: Saturday 25 April – CANCELLED

Hammersmith Regatta 2020 has been cancelled. We have based this decision on government and British Rowing advice (https://www.britishrowing.org/2020/03/17-march-update-on-coronavirus/). We hope to see you in 2021.

In 2019, weather conditions meant that we had to cancel the regatta. Fortunately, this is such an exceptional circumstance, that we had sufficient funds (along with our sponsorship from Fuller’s) to be able to refund full entry fees. Please note that, if we needed to cancel again, we may not be able to refund all entry fees.

Instructions and guidance – from the 2019 regatta – these will be updated nearer to the date of the regatta:

Standard Tideway navigation rules apply. Pages 77 to 81 of the code give specific directions for the area around Hammersmith Bridge.

Tide times are estimates and crews must ensure they assess the direction of the stream before boating and then boat with their bows pointing into the stream.

Please read the competitor’s instructionsHAR 2019 Instructions and safety notice to crews

Other guidance / instructions: Guidance for trailer drivers


If your club is planning to bring a trailer, please could you get in touch (secretary@hammersmithregatta.org) to give us an estimated arrival time; motor vehicles are not allowed on Furnivall Gardens and we’d like to have some volunteers ready to help you.

Please think of the environment: use reusable bottles which we will happily fill up for you, and dispose of your litter in bins (ideally recycling ones) or take it home with you.

For those travelling by car: please note that Hammersmith Bridge is closed to motorised traffic.
