Saturday 21st May Official Results.
Sunday 22nd May Official Results.

A reminder to all coaches that we should be aware of other crews on the lake and follow these rules when coaching from a tinnie:

· Tinnie drivers to show reasonable courtesy to users of unpowered craft (eg. rowers and canoeists)

· Cut wash when passing rower(s) travelling in the opposite direction

· When a moving tinnie is being approached from behind by a faster rowing boat, cut wash to allow the faster rowing boat to pass

· Minimise tinnie wash in East Basin

· Minimise tinnie wash on Yarramundi Reach when travelling South towards the start line

· A tinnie may keep pace with crews being coached/timed travelling North on Yarramundi Reach towards the finish line. Drivers to make reasonable effort to minimise the impact of wash on other rowers on the course.

The second of Rowing ACT’s Winter Time Trials will be held on the 19th and 20th June 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 Entries close at midnight on the Sunday preceding the time trial (June 12). 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.

• It is the responsibility of crews to ensure they are at the start on time (any crew who misses their allocated start time may be started at the end of the field). Crews should pay particular attention to the start time rather than boat number as some numbers may be missing.

• Clubs should ensure that scullers and crews have the skill and experience to complete the course under adverse weather conditions.

• Crews and scullers should take note of normal traffic rules on the way to the start.

• Slower crews should ensure that crews overtaking have space to pass on the most direct course.

• If you capsize during racing stay with your boat until a safety marshal arrives. Remember that your boat will float even when it is full of water.


Bow numbers will be available for collection from Black Mountain Rowing Club from 8am on Saturday


Officials are required to meet at the Black Mountain Rowing Club at 8:45am on the morning of each trial for a briefing. Wherever possible bring a tinnie and a megaphone.


Please be aware due to the ACT Half Marathon on Sunday there will be some road closures around the lake between 8:30am and 10:00am. View a detailed list of closures here.
