First race of the New Year on the river Thames
Lots of events for Seniors, Juniors and Masters

Course: River Thames, 3000 metres downstream from Elmbridge Canoe Club to Miskin's Wharf, run over two divisions - 10:30 and 13:00:

            RULES

 

Competitors are encouraged to race in more than one division. You are reminded that boats must display British Rowing standard identity codes and must be licensed for the Thames. 

 

In the event of oversubscription, priority will be given to eights/octos, fours and quads.

Events will be split into bands containing competitors of similar ranking. This will be clearly indicated on the start order. Senior events will be banded based on CRIMax.

            DOUBLING UP AND THE 2X EVENT

 

You may are encouraged to race in both divisions. 

 

*Please note: 2x are only offered as a second event. Both members of the 2x crew must be racing in a different event (4 or 8) or the entry will be rejected. 

            MASTERS EVENTS

 

Masters events will run in age groups, but may be combined using the conventional handicap system, except Masters 'Novice' (Mas.Nov). We will run Mas.Nov events if there are sufficient crews with no more than 10 PRIMax in any seat (apart from the cox).

Masters crews may be moved to the appropriate Senior category in the event of insufficient entries. Please state on your entry if you do not want to race Senior.

†The Mixed Masters Novice event will be run as a single event across both divisions. No more than 10 PRIMax in any seat (apart from the cox).
