"Thank you for your entries to Bedford Autumn Fours & Small Boats Head 2016 




The Provisional Draw is now available at


Due to our limited start marshalling area, all quads & fours will be started before doubles, pairs and then sculls. There are a few exceptions to this.


A gap of several minutes will be left between the last quads / fours and the first doubles


Please check the draw - if you consider that any of your crews are in the wrong position in the racing sequence, then please let me know so that I can make changes.


The final Draw (incorporating all changes) will be published on Thursday evening. 



Safety & Welfare


All documentation is available at


Please ensure that your crews have read the Safety Plan.





Longholme Island is available for parking as usual.  Access to Longholme is over the small bridge.   


We have arranged with the Council to have the parking on the Embankment opposite Longholme suspended. There are 'No Loading/Unloading' signs - please disregard these as they are intended to give you the space to park boat trailers

Please do not park cars on the Embankment - there is plenty of parking available nearby at Aspects Leisure Park


Disembarkation Pontoon


There is a disembarkation pontoon in the Finish Marshalling area. I would like to thank Star Club for this, as it’s half of their landing stage!

Note that crew changes on this pontoon are NOT allowed – it is to be used for getting boats out ONLY. Once all boats racing in a division have disembarked, this pontoon will be available for outbound boats.



Other information


For those new to the event, please note there is no public provision of drinking water in the boating area.


Please note that Bedford has acquired yet another new footbridge, 200 metres upstream of theTownBridge. Please be aware that there is strictly NO PUBLIC ACCESS to the bridge. 


Results will be available in the clubhouse at Bedford Rowing Club shortly after each division.  Prizes will be awarded on presentation of complete sets of BR licences to Race Control at Bedford Rowing Club, or can be collected after the event by arrangement with myself.




Races in Bedford run over multiple divisions; once the last division relevant to each category is complete, results will be posted to @bedfordrowing
