INFORMATION FOR COMPETITORS - 2018
---------------------------------------------------------------
Blue Star winning crew

This year's regatta took place on Saturday 4th August

The Race Programme (inc results) is available here

The regatta run in two divisions: this means you can comfortably race to a final in two events during the day, to make the most of your trip to Henley.  Doubling up within a Division has been accommodated as much as we can.  This may mean a tight turnaround but we have no room for more flexibility.

Division 1 runs from 9am to 1:30pm, Division 2 from 1:40pm to 6:45pm. The course runs for 800m upstream: approximately from 'Old Blades' to the 'Hole in the Wall'.

Entries for Senior Open and Women's events have been banded using British Rowing's new Competition Framework.  Banding is almost totally based on CRI data, only adjusted in a few cases where a crew has told us more about their relative speed and performance.

Experienced, top-end fours and quads should expect to race coxless, and less-experienced novice fours and quads should plan to race with a cox.  If you didn't follow this guidance, you're unlikely to have any opposition.

Junior and Masters events continue to be classified by age: Masters events have been handicapped if necessary.

Visit the Safety/Welfare page for important competitor and river user information.

ENTRIES CLOSED at Noon on SATURDAY 28th JULY

ENTRY INFORMATION

A. RESTRICTIONS ON ENTRIES

1.       If there are less than THREE entries for any Masters category, they will be combined with an adjacent category, and a handicap will be applied. State clearly when you enter on BROE if you do not wish to be re-allocated in this way.

2.       Competitors who enter more than one event in a Division do so at their own risk, and no-one (including coxswains) will be allowed to enter more than two events in a Division.

3.       Doubling up (including coxswains) and boat sharing within a Division must be clearly notified on the entry: we cannot guarantee it will be accommodated.

4.       Mixed crews must comprise an equal number of male and female competitors (excluding coxes).

5.       Alumni Eights must contain a minimum of 6 alumni of the relevant institution.

6.       All competitors must be registered with British Rowing.

B. SUBMITTING ENTRIES

1.       Entries close on Saturday 28th July at 12 Noon.  We do not accept late entries.

2.       Entries, including payment of entry fees, must be made via BROE.

3.       Unpaid entries will not be included in the Draw.

C. THE DRAW

1.       The draw will take place at Henley Rowing Club on Sunday 29th July.

2.       Senior Open and Women's events will be banded at the time of the draw, using Ranking Points as a guide.  If competitors believe their Ranking Points do not fairly reflect their potential, they should explain this to us in an email BEFORE entries close on 28th July.  We make no commitment to adjust a crew's banding AFTER the draw.

3.       The Committee reserves the right to refuse an entry without giving a reason.

D. RACING                                                                                        

1.       Vehicles towing boat trailers or carrying boats will be admitted free: all other vehicles will be charged for parking.

2.       You must register on regatta day at least 40 minutes before the time of your first race.

3.       All competitors must bring their Racing Licences with them to the regatta.

4.       All boats must carry a 6-digit id in accordance with BR Rule of Racing 7-2-8-f.

5.       Coxes must provide their own deadweight.

Any questions regarding entries can be made to the Entries Secretary, Helen Knowles

Telephone 07801 710673, e-mail entries@henleytownregatta.org.uk

Under the new BR Framework, you only gain Ranking Points for your best event (in a given discipline) in the day.  For instance, if you race in a double in one Division, then in a quad or single in the other, you only get RPs for one of those events.  Similarly you can mix and match between eights, fours and pairs.  Doubling up within a Division is at your risk.
