Dee Autumn Head

The Dee Autumn Head takes place on the River Dee in Chester. Crews race from the A55 ‘motorway’ bridge to Dee Lane. A distance of just under 4000m.


Many thanks to all who supported the Dee Autumn Head in 2018.  It was a difficult year for the event as we could only run one division due to the tidal conditions on the day of the event.  We hope the change in format was good for all who took part in the event.

We are already looking forward to seeing you next year on 26th October 2019 for the next Dee Autumn Head.  In 2019 we hope to run the familiar two division format again.


Following this years the event we noticed a discrepancy with a handicap calculation for one event W.MasB/C/D.4x-.  This problem has now been corrected.  The crews have been informed via their entries secretaries. The results file available from the link has been updated to reflect this change.  We apologise to the crews involved in this class for the error made in the results calculation.

Many thanks to NWRRC, British Rowing, QPH, RCRC, CBS, CWAC, SJA  for you support with the event
