North Berwick Rowing Club Regatta 2016

Our regatta this year will be held on Saturday 27th August. We will have races around Craigleith, approx 1.8miles, which takes anything from 18-30 mins depending on conditions of water and crew!

Below is the draft schedule of race categories, if we do not get enough entries in some categories, we may merge them, or shorten the course in order to get through all the races. Our intention though is to hold the races in the following order, which should help you to plan crew availability.

Maximum boats we can start in one race is 12, if we get more entries than that, we will split into an A and B race. They will be separate races with first across the line being the winner (rather than using the time to determine winner). Allocation into the A or B race will be influenced by the club's results at Skiffie Worlds for that category.

*The Mixed Novice / Fresher event is a single race open to crews of Novice (never won a race) or Fresher (first year of rowing) rowers.

**60+ and U19 will be handicapped races, meaning you can make up any combination of male or female rowers provided they are within the age category. For the juniors a handicap system will be used for each year band from aged 14 to 18, allowing younger teens to compete fairly against older ones. The handicap system will be used to adjust the times based on gender (and in the case of juniors, also age) and determine winning crew. We are likely to shorten the course for these categories to fit all of the races in.

Crews racing in “mixed” category events must have at least one male rower in the crew, and there must be at least 2 female rowers rowing at all times.

 

Please help us with our planning by getting your entries in ASAP, closing date for entries is Friday 19th August 2016.
