Reading Amateur Regatta - Rules of Entry:
The Rules of Entry for 2019 were published on 24th March 2019.
Entries will open at 0900 on Saturday 11th May 2019.
Entries will close at 2200 on Wednesday 5th June 2019.
Entries must be submitted, and paid for, using the British Rowing Online Regatta Entry 2 (BROE2) system. No other method of entry or payment will be accepted.
The Regatta’s capacity is a total of 195 races each day, at which point BROE2 will be suspended for new entries for that day.
Entry fees are £15.00 per seat.
Only fully paid up entrants, as identified by BROE2, will be accepted and count towards the capacity in Rule 4. Crews will be accepted on a first-paid-first-accepted basis.
If entries are suspended before the closing date, the first 25 prospective
entrants for each division that subsequently pay will be put on a waiting list for
that division in case of scratchings. They will neither be marked as accepted nor
rejected and there will be no communication to those entrants. All other
prospective entrants will be rejected.
Any unpaid entries will be rejected at the closing date. Payment of entry fees
prior to the draw has been a long-standing condition of entry to this regatta.
Updates on the level of entries will be communicated via the Regatta’s Twitter account (@ReadingAM) as appropriate. No other method of communication will be used.
On each day the regatta will be split into two independent divisions. Doubling up
of competitors, including coxes, will be permitted between the morning and
afternoon divisions (but is not allowed within divisions).
Saturday’s races will be held over the Championship 1500 metre course from a
staggered stake-boat start with two race lanes. Events on offer are listed in the table at the top of this page.
On Sunday the races will be over a 1000 metre course with staggered stake-boat
start. Events on offer are listed in the table at the top of this page.
All events are subject to being split into bands based on a crew’s Ranking Index.
The Regatta organisers reserve the right to withdraw any event where there are
less than four boats at the close of entries.
Any overseas crews must submit a record of each crew’s performance for the
year as well as individual records for each competitor. These must be submitted
before entries are made, submission at least a week before the opening of
entries is recommended. Overseas entries will not be accepted until this
information has been provided.
Any overseas crew winning an event on Saturday and races again on the Sunday
may be obliged to row in the next higher band of their event.
The draw will take place at RG4 7TH, at 19:30 on Friday 7th June, a week before
the regatta weekend. After this time all substitutions must be made via the Crew
Stewards before the first race of each day for that crew.
Presentation prizes will be awarded if two or more boats start in an event.
The Regatta Committee reserves the right to make alterations to any of the above.
