- Additional Entry Information
On the evidence of the record entry in the Oarsport Junior Sculling Head (OJSH) this year, we are likely to have to limit the number of crews racing at the regatta because of the limited time in one day. We will prioritise the highest quality crews that enter, in order to promote as high quality an event as possible.
We have set the initial limits noted above allowing for a total of 720 crews to race. If some events are under-subscribed then we may increase the numbers in others.
For quads events priority will be given to the positions of crews at the OJSH or that have shown equivalent speed in some other event.
For singles and doubles we will consult the ranking index and past performances if we need to limit the numbers in any event.
We appreciate that we may have to make some marginal decisions based on incomplete information, but we think this is preferable to a "first to enter" system.
