Doggetts 2022

Due to the record temperatures earlier this week,  this year’s race had to be postponed.

We are pleased to confirm that this year’s race will now take place shortly after 1030 hrs on Thursday 28th July 2022, to take advantage of the flood tide, over the traditional course from London Bridge to Chelsea.

The last-minute withdrawal of Mathew Brookes from the race means that George Gilbert will scull over to claim the prize at his fourth and final attempt.

There will be no follow-boats on this occasion, but the event can be viewed free-of-charge from anywhere along the 7400m course!

The winner will receive a presentation wristwatch from sponsors Harold Pinchbeck Watches and, as usual, the red Coat and Badge will be presented later in the year at the presentation dinner held by The Worshipful Company of Fishmongers.
