2018 Course

Owing to the ongoing Tideway Tunnel works around Putney Pier, the 2018 race will again 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 finish circulation pattern is included in the safety and marshalling instructions.

The works began in 2016 and are expected to last for around three and a half years. The Veteran Fours Head committee first agreed the Ranelagh finish 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.
