The Third of Rowing ACT’s Winter Time Trials will be held on the 16th and 17th July 2011. The format of the event is singles and pairs on the Saturday, doubles, quads, fours and eights on Sunday. Rowing ACT is willing to accept double entries on Saturday, however crews must be early novice. Clubs need to be aware these crews will NOT be competing in any official category and will not be awarded prize or point score rewards.
The course is 4km long and runs from near the Dam, around a turning boat near the 1800m start, down Yarramundi Reach, around Kurrajong Point and up Tarcoola Reach finishing at the first of the white timber piles, opposite the AIS in Lotus Bay.
The series winner for each category of boat is determined by a point score based on handicap times. Crews/scullers receive one point for each race they complete, plus one point for each opponent in that race that they beat on handicap time. Crews can accumulate series points provided they do not change more than 25% of their crew from one time trial to the next.
Entries should be via your club and sent by email to Rowing ACT . Entries close at midnight on the Sunday preceding the time trial (July 10). Larger clubs may collate entries into the template spread sheet below.

Note. Clubs entering 3 to 8 entries are required to nominate 1 Safety Marshal to validate their entries. Any club entering 9 or more crews on Saturday or 7 or more on Sunday will be required to nominate 2 Safety Marshals. These individuals must not be a BRO already committed to assisting with start or finish duties. Safety Marshals will be required to report to the BROs with a tinnie and will be assisting in safety management during this event.
Entries will not be accepted without this nomination.
