Competitors in J16 and above are encouraged to race in more than one event in different divisions, competitors may not race more than once in the same event.

Events are offered in combinations of the following categories which run across all three divisions:

1x / 2x / 2-

Open / Women’s / Mixed

Senior entries will be banded depending on the number of entries and personal ranking totals of the crews or scullers.

At present we working on the rules for crews wishing to double up.

All Masters Cats , J18, J17, J16, J15, J14

  1. All competitors must be competent & capable of completing a 10k outing per division entered.
  2. Juniors under the age of 15 may not compete in sweep-oared events.
  3. We reserve the right to limit the number of entries in any division.
  4. Our distinctive medals will be presented on the day to the winners in all events where at least three crews have entered and to second or third placed crews as described above. The fastest crew overall in each boat type, open, women, mixed or junior, will be awarded a medal if there are under three entries in their particular event. Only one medal per entry.
  5. Masters categories may be grouped together and medals awarded at our discretion to give the maximum number of competitors the chance to race for a medal. Please state if you wish to race in the top band. Handicaps will be applied where appropriate.
  6. There will be a masters novice band for competitors typically with RPI less than 100. Obviously the crew should have no previous wins and not have raced in championship events at British Masters and other top events. Enter the masters category for the crew and state you wish to race as novice. Please respect the spirit of this category.
  7. Where a substitution is made to a senior or masters crew after the close of entries that would raise the band originally allotted to the crew it will be considered to be competing in the highest band.
