Brian has requested that all rowers racing be at Ian Shaw Park 1 hour prior to race start with intention of rigging, warming up, and being on the water by the required time.. Any changes to this will be advised by either Brian or Michael directly.

ARC have advised to please take note of the following:
· For safety reasons – all school and novice crews must be in coxed boats (except of course doubles and singles)
· All participating crews must be on the water and in the starting zone by 7:50 am for an 8 am start (8.50 am for 9am start)
· The fastest crews will start first – eights first, than quads and fours followed by doubles pairs and singles last
· During the row all crews must stay as close to the starboard- or bow side shore as practical
· A crew that is being passed must hold its course, allowing the passing crew to pass safely
· Rowing is in an anti clockwise direction – all turning markers must be negotiated on port- or stroke side
· During a passing manoeuvre at a turning marker – the crew that arrived at the marker first has the right of way
· To prevent accidents at the finish line – all crews must carry-on rowing until they are well clear of the finish line
· Safety boats and umpires are controlling the course and all crews must follow their instructions
On completion of rowing the ARC will email all crews the prognostic results as soon as possible.
To assist you with interpreting the results I have attached the 2000 meter prognostic times that we will be using.
As a guideline – any crew that reaches 90% or better can consider themselves quick!!
Please note that there will be no masters training on these weekends (unless advised directly). Rowers not competing should be working on their own fitness on the racing days (no other rowing training will take place at Te Atatu).
