Note - for Time Trials, everything from the docks to the finish line applies as in the finals traffic pattern. For both the Time Trials and Finals, crews will be allowed to launch no earlier than 45 minutes before their posted start time, but may be permitted to do an extra WU loop before the railroad bridge if we have enough volunteers to place a safety boat there. This will be confirmed at the 8:00AM meeting.
The Women's and Men's Para 1x races will be combined and will run immediately following the W1x events, as listed in the Time Trial.
These two events will also be combined for the finals, but we do not have the ability to do that in RegattaMaster until after the TT. But the finals will run in the same order as the TT - W1x, Para M/W 1x, M1x, W2- and M2-, with the finals running in reverse order.
We will run an E Final for the W1x if there are any late entries received on Saturday AM.
Just a reminder that bow numbers will only be available at the meeting at 8AM, as per the regatta package.
A note about the Time Trials...

The ROWONTARIO Spring Small Boat Trials is a 2000m Time Trial to Seeded Final regatta open to 1x and 2- entries only. The event is part of the Trillium Chase 1x Challenge Series.
The Trillium Chase is a monthly 1x Challenge Series – a single sculler’s ‘Grand Prix’ – organized by ROWONTARIO. Each month, single scullers of all ages will have the opportunity to earn points toward the ROWONTARIO Trillium Cup, which will be co-awarded to the male and female sculler, regardless of category, who wins the most points throughout the Series.
The ROWONTARIO Spring Small Boat Trials is also an ideal preparation event for athletes intending to attend the 2018 RCA Speed Orders National Selection Regatta on June 22nd-24th in London, ON.
