2017 Course

Owing to the Tideway Tunnel works around Putney Pier, the 2017 race will run from the University Stone at Mortlake to Ranelagh Sailing Club on Putney Embankment.

On race day the finish line will be marked with the usual banners, on the Ranelagh clubhouse and the Bishops Park wall, and the new finish circulation pattern will be included in the safety and marshalling instructions (available on this website after the close of entries on 31 October).

The works are expected to last for around three and a half years, and the Veteran Fours Head committee has agreed this course for the 2017 race. The committee will watch what other Tideway events are doing and will make an assessment each year, based on experiences of safely marshalling crews who have finished their race.
