Thames Valley Park Regatta Cancelled

The 2012 Thames Valley Park Regatta (TVP) has been cancelled because of concerns about local conditions on the river.

The Regatta had been scheduled to take place on Sunday 17th June, at Thames Valley Park, Reading.

After a meeting of the TVP committee on Thursday lunchtime to assess the conditions on the Thames, the following message was posted on the official regatta website.

Whilst river levels on the reach have dropped slightly, the flow at Caversham has increased over yesterday. We are very concerned with the weather forecast for tonight and Friday, compounded by high winds for the weekend. This means that the situation is unlikely to improve enough for us to go ahead ensuring the safety of all concerned with the event.”

Organisers are keen to stress that next week’s Reading Town Regatta is scheduled to go ahead as planned, on Saturday 23rd June.
