The latest bulletin from the Environment Agency is available here: 09.03.21 Thames Covid-19 update
As of March 2021, in-person society events remain cancelled due to the COVID19 pandemic. Details about the online events, including the AGM, are available in “Scull, Pole and Paddle”
The improving situation gives us hope that some events may be able to run in the summer. Details will be published here when available.
The latest information from the EA can be found by following links under the “River Thames Advice” section of this website.
As of 5 March 2021 (this may change with time, so please check), the Government’s plan for private boating in small open boats is as follows:
8 March: Stay local (stay in the village, town or part of the city where you live). Private boating on an open boat permitted for recreation for a single household or bubble – subject to the requirements to stay local and minimise time spent away from home
29 March: Minimise travel. 6 people / 2 households per boat provided social distancing can be maintained between people / different households.
No earlier than 17 May: Minimise travel. Same as previous step, but now, on open boats, up to legal capacity.
No earlier than 21 June: No restrictions (subject to review)
All Society events are currently cancelled, due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. We will post updates as the lockdown is eased and allows us to start activities on the water again. This will depend on the advice given by British Rowing.
The latest COVID updates from British Rowing can be found here.
In the meantime, one of our members (Alex Zivanovic) has set up his erg at home so that he can virtually row down the Thames using Google Streetview without leaving his house:
As everyone is aware recent advice from the government concerning the spread of the Covid-19 virus has now been amended. It is now recommended that everyone avoids mixing with others if possible.
The Committee has therefore decided to cancel the AGM on the 28 March and also the Spring Luncheon planned for 5 April.
The Committee will keep Members informed of any developments and hope that they appreciate our decisions. If there are any questions that would have come out at the AGM please do not hesitate to contact a committee member and we will endeavour to answer them.
The AGM will take place at Marlow Rowing Club at 4 PM. All members are welcome.
The Spring Lunch will be again held at Maidenhead Rowing Club.
If you want to attend then return the form sent to members to Cliff by 16 March.

This is really is a very pleasant evening in a special place in Henley and the Committee would like to see lots of members there. It is a good opportunity to meet up with others you may not see otherwise. A very good meal and reasonably priced drinks complete the event.
