BROE2 suspended

At 9:45 a.m. on 16 October, there were 228 completed entries on the online entries system. The maximum number of crews for this year's race is 215, and so BROE2 has been suspended.

The first 215 completed entries (crew + host club + payment) have been accepted on the online system. Submitting administrators will have received an automated e-mail confirmation.

As at 1 p.m. on 16 October, a further 14 crews had completed entries, and are listed as 'paid, pending acceptance' on the entries spreadsheet. Should any crews that have been accepted into the race withdraw between now and close of entries on 8 November, places will be allocated to these crews in order of payment.

There are also 26 incomplete crews live on the online system. All are unpaid, and nine are also without host clubs. Should any of these crews complete their entries, they will be added to the end of the list of 'paid, pending acceptance' crews.

In the unlikely event that sufficient accepted crews withdraw to give all crews that have paid but not yet been accepted places in the start order, BROE2 will re-open for new entries. Advance warning will be given via this website, and on Twitter.


entries now open

BROE2 opened for entries at 10 a.m. on Tuesday 1 October, and will close at 5 p.m. on Friday 8 November 2019 OR when 215 completed entries have been accepted, whichever the earlier.

Please read the relevant sections of the website before making your entries, and note:

  •  All competitors must have a British Rowing membership that expires in November 2019 or later to appear in the list of available crew members on BROE2 (even if you are submitting the entry in October)
  • All visiting crews must have permission to boat from a host club before submitting entries
  • Tideway clubs: please remember to set your own club as your host club
  • Crews will be accepted on the online entry system on completion of their entry, including payment of their entry fee

2019 capacity and events

The race committee have confirmed that this year's race will have a maximum of 215 entries.

This is due to the works at Fulham Football Ground restricting the safe marshalling area available on the Middlesex bank.

Events will be offered for quads (4x), coxed fours (4+) and coxless fours (4-) for Masters A to J open, women and mixed crews. There will also be coxed quads (4x+) for open, women and mixed crews. 

Entries will open on BROE2 at 10 a.m. on Tuesday 1 October and will close at 5 p.m. on Friday 8 November, though the online entry system may be suspended earlier if the race is oversubscribed by completed entries.


2019 Race - REVISED

This year's race will start at 9.45 a.m. on Sunday 24 November, and will be raced on the flood tide, on the usual upstream course from the Mile Post at Putney to the white crane on Chiswick Staithe (Barkers Rails).

Events will be offered for quads (4x), coxless fours (4-) and coxed fours (4+) in all standard British Rowing Masters categories - A to J - for open, women's and mixed crews.

The maximum number of entries, and any additional events, will be confirmed in late September: the race committee are reviewing marshalling arrangements given the ongoing work at Fulham Football Ground.

Entries will open at 10 a.m. on Tuesday 1 October and will close at 5 p.m. on Friday 8 November, or earlier if the race is oversubscribed by completed entries.
