Limited access to West Lakes Aquatic Reserve 20th March – Head of the River

To the SA Rowing Community,

As you are aware, this Saturday will be the SA Schools 2021 Head of the River. We are excited that this event will go ahead for all the athletes, however it will be a Head of the River different than we have come to expect.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a COVID management plan approved by SA Health implemented by the heads of schools states that this is a ticketed event. What does this mean for you?

From 5AM-1:30PM SATURDAY 20/03/2021 the site will be fully fenced off (SITE MAP HERE) and there will be NO ACCESS to the site except for those who have wristbands (athletes, coaches, volunteers, staff, officials, and approved spectators TBD by individual schools).

Security will be at each entrance monitoring access. Oar Café will be closed to the public on Saturday but will be the sole food/beverage supplier on the day to event patrons.

Please also note that fencing surrounding the whole site will be erected on Thursday and Friday, however access will remain available as normal on these days.

We appreciate your understanding and assistance with this major event and apologise for the inconvenience.

Good luck to all racing! -RSA
