Please ensure that the contact information that appears on a Club's entries be correct and complete.
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 a crew wishes not to be accommodated by this method, preferences must be made clear in the free-text part of the BROE entry.
