Last minute move for Henley Boat race

This year?s Henley Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge women and lightweight crews has been moved.

This year?s Henley Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge women and lightweight crews has been moved.

Organisers decided to move it to Dorney Lake due to strong stream and wind being forecast for race day on Sunday.

A spokesman said: ?It was deemed unlikely that conditions will improve sufficiently by the weekend for a safe event to take place.

?Since the safety of the athletes and spectators is the strongest priority to the organising committee, the relocation is a necessary change.?

The race programme and schedule will remain the same, and parking and other facilities will be available to the public at Dorney Lake.
