Reading University Head of the River

Visit the Reading Head website

A majority of the organization of this excellent 8's head race is carried out by the university students, which helps them to raise funds for RUBC. It is a well supported event and a boat race crew is often in attendance. Ortner BC have raced a men's 8 in the last 2 years and have almost scared the RUBC first 8's. We are hoping to be able to put out a women's crew this year also.

Please plan to come along even if it is only to support.

After the racing Ortner BC are planning a get-together to which all Ortner members and RUBC members are invited. - More details closer to the event.

If you would like to put an advertisement for your company in the program for the Head Race please check out the sponsorship page. All the money goes to the University.
