Important notice from the ARA:
"The following advice has been received from the Ministry of Agriculture and fisheries.
'Due to the current outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease people should avoid travelling from and rowing on water in infected areas.'
The ARA supports this advice and asks all its clubs to consider whether or not they should travel to events. We are in a rapidly changing situation and will continue to advise members through this site. For information on infected areas please visit The Ministry of Agriculture website."   
[Having looked at the MAFF site, the infected areas are detailed as links (including maps) from http://www.maff.gov.uk/animalh/diseases/fmd/areas.htm, and fortunately at present they don't appear to include many rowing areas. See also info from The Rowing Service.]

With Reading Head having been cancelled, an alternative event was held at London Docks on Saturday 24th February:
London Docklands Regatta Committee ran 2 x 3,000m timed head races at the Royal Albert and Victoria Docks on Saturday for all disappointed Reading Head crews. Price £30 per boat. Prizes for categories with more than five entries. Boats went afloat at 12:00 noon and raced east to west, then staying afloat, back to the start and did it again.
Contact Fred Badowski at Royal Albert Dock Trust [mailto:radt@lineone.net]

And from earlier in the month:
News of FISA rule changes, & of ARA appointments (including CCJ).  
Confirmation from ARA, FISABBC, & ITN that Matthew Pinsent & Tim Foster will both be continuing to Athens.
