Each event will be classed as Open, so we will NOT be taking into account crew’s current status as defined under the present British Rowing Rules of Racing or the crews Ranking Index that has at present been attached to them.

It is hoped that each crew will enter the event that they feel is appropriate standard for them. The table below gives a guide as to how we would classify the events offered:-

Event

Present BR Crew Status & Old Marlow Regatta Events

Championship

Elite & Senior

Tier 2

IM1 & IM2

Club

IM3

University/College

IM3

School/Junior

IM3

Championship events are for crews who have every chance of doing well at Henley Royal Regatta i.e. at least still being involved on the Friday. In the past few years, several winners of the Elite events at Marlow Regatta have gone on to reach HRR finals, many with success. This is less true for the small boat events, for whom HRR only have events at the highest level.

Crews who have high hopes of racing at HRR, but realistically perhaps not of winning, should aim at the “Tier 2” events.

Should the Regatta feel that a crew has been entered into an inappropriate event they will be contacted by the Regatta.

As in previous years the Regatta will be split over 3 divisions to allow crews, if they wish, to double up.


Entry fees & Parking

The rowing entry fees remain unchanged from 2016. The parking fee per car has been reduced to £10. All vehicles, with the exception of tow vehicles and vehicles carrying boats, will be required to pay £10 entry to park.


Racing

We will again be offering all crews a 1,900m time trial, and then based on these results, a side-by-side race over 2,000m in A, B, C, D.... finals. Racing is expected to run from 8:30 am through to 19:00. Time trials will all be rowed first, which will take the morning to complete. They will then be followed by the Finals. The same sequence of events will be followed for Time Trials and Finals.

Some may think that there is a long time to wait between their time trial and the Final, but an analysis has shown that in fact, for the majority of crews, the wait time is shorter than when we used to run heats, repechages and then Finals.  Of course some crews were eliminated after their first heat. In the new format, all crews get a both a time trial and then a side-by-side race against crews of roughly equal speed.  We feel this gives all entrants better value for money.

The order of events is designed to allow crews to double up if they so wish.
Racing
  1. Racing will take place using 6 lanes over 2000m
  2. Events with 4 or fewer entries will only be run at the regatta's discretion.
  3. For each event all crews will race a preliminary time trial over 1,900m before progressing to the finals.
  4. The time trials will be run in the same event order as the Finals.
  5. The fastest 6 crews will progress to Final A, the next 6 fastest to Final B etc.
  6. Crews will be seeded into the finals based upon their time trial result.
  7. Competitors may not double up in the same time trial wave.
  8. Competitors intending to race in two events should note the published Order of Finals (see summary of entries); this order will be used for all stages of the Regatta.
  9. Finals will take place at 5 minute intervals, and there will be no changes to the timetable to accommodate competitors who are racing in more than one event.
  10. Quart pewter tankards are awarded to winners of all Championship events.
  11. Pint pewter tankards are awarded to all other winners.
Entries
  1. Entries should be made on the British Rowing website.
  2. Crews wishing to double up must indicate this on their BROE entry, clearly identifying their priority event. Should the total Regatta entry prove unmanageable, then the second priority event of a doubled up crew will be rejected.
  3. Payment may be made either via the British Rowing entry system or by cheque made payable to Marlow Regatta Ltd.
  4. Entries close at 8.00pm on Wednesday, 7th June and late entries will not be accepted.

  12. The Committee reserves the right to refuse any entry without giving a reason and to make alterations to the Programme and Conditions for Events etc.
