Schedule of events

We changed the timetable from last year because we had insufficient entries in a number of the Masters events, causing us to form handicap races by merging categories - this caused major scheduling problems. We therefore changed the event schedule for 2016 so that all Masters categories for a particular boat type are together, meaning races can be merged without upsetting the timetable.
However, it is apparent that this is causing problems with boat sharing, and with crews who wish to race in different age categories in the same boat type. To alleviate scheduling difficulties we may be able to spread out the Masters races by inserting Junior and status races that follow on from the Masters boat type. Please make copious notes in BROE on any doubling and/or boat sharing and we will try our best to accommodate you.

Masters', Senior and Junior events will be rowed in the following order. Events not listed will be incorporated to suit competitors as far as possible.
