Organisers apologise while inviting registrations for event in 2020
Regatta London has apologised after stormy weather over last weekend led to the cancellation of the inaugural Regatta London race along the River Thames, due to take place on Sunday 29th September.
The regatta would have seen more than 1,000 rowers, kayakers and paddle boarders race along the river through central London, from Hammersmith Bridge in the west to the O2 in the east.
Regatta London tweeted @regatta_London: "We are very sorry to announce that Regatta London, due to take place on 29 September, has been cancelled. This is not an action that we have taken lightly and we share the disappointment of everyone due to take part. "
The organisers said: “We share the disappointment of all those involved, but the health and safety of our event participants and our team must be our main priority".
They are now contacting participants to organiste refunds or deferment of places to next year’s event.
It is set to take place on 20 September 2020, and kayakers, canoers and paddle boarders can now register their interest here.
