The following events are available at UBBC Head Race 2023:


All crews not boating from Bath will be based at the Saltford Rowing Centre (Bath Rd, Saltford, Bristol BS31 3JN).

Trailers and minibuses (subject to space) may park in the field found on the left hand side immediately after driving through the gates to the Saltford Rowing Centre (Google Maps).

Parking for all other vehicles will be available at Barnsdale Farm (Google Maps), on the left hand side of the road approximately 500m past the Saltford Rowing Centre, along the A4 Bath Road (towards Bath). There will be a £5 charge (cash/card) upon entry.

Please note all vehicles MUST turn left when exiting the parking field, due to a one way system being in place.

Signs and marshals will be present on the day to direct vehicles, and a map of parking/rigging arrangements can be found in the 'Competitor Information' Document which can be found on the 'Competitor Info' page.


Entry fees for UBBC Head Race 2023 are £13/seat for eights, fours and quads, and £15/seat for all other boat classes.


Each member of the winning crew from each category will receive a custom UBBC rigger jigger. Prizes will only be awarded for categories with 4 or more entries.
