The Regatta Draw, Instructions for Competitors and Safety Information will only be sent out by electronic means.
It is therefore essential that the contact information that appears on a Club's entries be correct and as complete as possible.
DOUBLING-UP: is permitted. HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE: The order of event numbers in all heats and finals will be as follows: 34, 39, 49, 26, 28, 46, 32, 41, 13, 27, 24, 25, 19, 48, 38, 33, 12, 22, 14, 15, 45, 40, 10, 36, 50, 29, 17, 11, 7, 8, 31, 43, 6, 30, 37, 5, 35, 9, 47, 44, 23, 2, 18, 4, 16, 21, 42, 20, 3, 1 and THIS ORDER WILL NOT BE CHANGED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Heats will be at 3 or 4 minute intervals, with finals at 4 or 5 minute intervals.
It is the responsibility of entrants to ensure that they will have sufficient time between races.
Races will start without reference to absentees. Notice of doublings is no longer required.
The Regatta offers a wide range of events, but is limited as to the number of races it can accommodate. The Committee therefore reserves the right to refuse entries which are incomplete or not accompanied by full payment, and to cancel any event with insufficient entries.
In the case of what it judges to be insufficient entries for a viable event, the Committee will transfer the entry to the next higher class without reference, unless it is made clear on the entry that this is not acceptable.
If individuals are doubling-up and one of their crews has to be refused, efforts will be made to ensure that the remaining crew is accommodated if at all possible.
If a crew wishes not to be accommodated by this method, preferences must be made clear in the free-text part of the OARA entry.
