EVENT (5.45-6.15pm Friday 22 July 2022)

We are pleased to advise that we will be welcoming the Queen’s Baton Relay to the River Severn Navigation at Worcester on Friday between 17:45 and 18:15.

The event is hosted jointly by Worcester City Council and Worcester Dragons.

The relay will take place between Worcester Bridge and a point 0.6km downstream, at Diglis House Hotel, with a Dragon Boat and escorts (including rowing boats) carrying the baton in figure of eight patterns, covering the full width of the navigation and not following the usual rules of the road.

Vessels are requested to avoid this area between these times if at all possible, but otherwise please be vigilant and pass through the event area extremely slowly, making minimal wash and keeping well clear of participating boats
