HAMPTON SMALL BOATS HEAD 2023
Due to recent weather conditions we have had to make the decision to cancel the Hampton Small Boats Head due to take place on Saturday 25 November 2023.
Thank you for your support and we hope to see many of you at the Hampton Fours and Eights Head on Saturday 3 February 2024.
THE HAMPTON HEADS
Each year the Hampton School Boat Club hosts two major rowing events on its home stretch of the River Thames: The Hampton Small Boats Head and The Hampton Fours and Eights Head.
Both races are run over a course of approximately 3000m downstream from Sunbury Lock. The first of these events is the Small Boats Head, typically held in late November, with the Fours and Eights head following in late January/early February. Viewing is possible, along the full length of the course; from the towpath running on the south (Molesey) bank from the start at Sunbury Lock to the finish at the western end of Platt’s Eyot. Most supporters gather at the eastern end of Hurst Park, opposite Platt’s Eyot to cheer on at the finish.
