Rowing ACT has announced the process by which ACT State crews will be selected for the 2015 Australian Masters Rowing Championships. The Inter-state events are:

Women’s Eight
Women’s Quad
Men’s Eight
Men’s Quad

Nominees must nominate which boats they wish to be considered for selection prior to the close of entries on 13/2/2015.

Nominees will be required to complete a 1000m time trial on Saturday 21st February 2015.
Separate time trials/races will be conducted for quad scull nominees in single sculls and for eight oared nominees in coxless fours.
Time trials will be conducted prior to other events at the regatta. If less than eight crews (or scullers) nominate for any of the time trials, then they will be conducted as a straight selection race. No Masters handicaps will be applied, i.e. all crews (or scullers) will start together.
Nominees wishing to be considered for the quads must trial in single sculls.
Selection of the quads will be based on the rankings from the sculler trials, as well as ensuring each crew averages 50 years or greater at December 31, 2015.
Nominees wishing to be considered for the eights will trial in coxless fours.
The average age of the trialling fours must be 50 years or greater, and all crew members must have nominated and be available to compete in the state crew. The first two fours across the line will be selected as the state eight-oared crew. Crews averaging less than 50 years will not be considered for selection.
No substitutions will be allowed either at the selection time trial or after selection of the crew. Crew composition remains the responsibility of the selector up to and including race day.

The selection of coxswains will take into account the recommendation of the selected crew, past and present performance in training and competition, weight, and steering ability.

Email nominations close with at 5pm on Friday 13th February 2015.
