The programme for tomorrow’s regatta can be found here. Special repeat note re Races 16 lane 6, 38 lane 2, 53 lane 6 and 61 lane 5, these crews have one or two adaptive rowers rowing under ACTAS programmes. The single scullers are vision impaired rowers, these and the double scullers should be given every support by our rowing community. The entry of the vision impaired single scullers has been advised previously and ACTRA was disappointed to receive a complaint about the single scullers being entered in E grade races. Both single scullers will be accompanied by guides in tinnies and are placed in outside double lanes. Clubs are advised that medals will be awarded to placings 1, 2 and 3 for the 31 January regatta. Races with 3 crews will have medals awarded for first and second only. Cocky clubs may wish to have a wheelbarrow handy.

Canberra Rowing Club Regatta – Call for Entries The CRC Regatta is being held on Saturday, 31 January. Entries must be placed through your club so that they reach ACTRA no later than 25 January. Standard ACTRA List of Events The standard list of events has been changed for the CRC and following regattas. The new list can be found here. The changes are:

  • For grade D and E there are now separate school events and open events. In situations where entries are insufficient to conduct races in school and open categories the races may be combined to avoid adding to the length of regattas. This is a reorganisation of the existing pattern of entries and will not result in additional races on the programme.
  • An events for MGD 2x (school and open) has been added to the list.
