Apology to all competitors, coaches, spectators and officials
The organising committee has now been advised by Regatta Master that the operation of their system on Saturday was severely compromised by a capacity setting. The number of website requests exceeded the configured capacity which meant that our timekeeping, results and twitter feed team performance was compromised by being unable to update information. This was resolved when it was eventually identified but was a major cause of the delayed Time Trial results.

This explanation only helps to understand why the organisation of our regatta on Saturday fell so far below the standard expected by all of you, and aimed at by the Committee and the large numbert of volunteers who give us their support, and I can only apologise to you all. Our IT team has worked very hard over the past three days to resolve individual queries and an extensive review will be held into our systems for next year.
