Head of the Float 2020

Like many other events this year, we have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel Head of the Float, which was due to take place at the West Float on Saturday 28th November 2020. It seems increasingly likely that Covid19 restrictions in Merseyside will become even more stringent and it would be impossible to run the event.

We are all very disappointed but hope to see all our rowing friends at Merseyside Regatta next spring, when hopefully the current crisis will be over

Next Event: 30th November 2019

This time of year means Liverpool Victoria’s Head of the Float! Although we have moved the event into late November, crews from all over the North West, West Midlands and Yorkshire will make the journey to the West Float in Wirral, for two legs of the dock. This year we are awarding a club pennant to the fastest men’s and women’s crews, in addition to a medal for each crew member in a category winning crew. Hot food and drinks will be on sale throughout the day. Thank you to all clubs that have entered, to our officials and club members who make this event possible, braving the cold but avoiding the floods and fast streams that have affected so many events this autumn. Thanks also to our local support, through Peel Ports, Jenkins Shipping, United Molasses Storage and TAG Scaffolding, without whose help we couldn’t run our events.
