ENTRIES are via BR Online Entry at £11 per rowing seat (online payment only).
ORDER OF RACING: the first ten competitors in Division 1 will hold their places from the previous year insofar as possible, otherwise competitors will race within their allocated bands. For safety reasons, each division may be restricted to the first hundred entries (priority given to paid entries).
MASTERS' EVENTS: for each boat class (and for open and women's events separately), every masters age category in which at least two crews race will be eligible for a trophy. For a given boat type, any age categories that contain only a single crew will compete for the 'headship on handicap' for that boat class- i.e. they will win if they beat, on handicapped time, ALL other masters crews in that class of boat.
JUNIOR EVENTS: the organisers reserve the right to amalgamate Junior categories as appropriate to form a race, or to move to an appropriate Senior event.
PRESENTATION OF PRIZES will be in Nottingham Rowing Club at 16:30. Presentation trophies will be awarded to all event winners (note that trophies will only be awarded for an event where at least two crews actually race (except for masters 'headships' as above).
CLOSE OF ENTRIES: Noon on Sunday 13th October - draw at 13:00 in Nottingham RC
