2009 Awards                           
Individual medals will be awarded to the crews of the three fastest boats in each event, provided there are at least three entries that row the event.

The Ernestine Bayer Cup is awarded to the fastest women?s single scull and the Fairwind's Cup is awarded to the fastest men?s single scull.

The New Hampshire Cup is a team trophy awarded for the best overall performance. Points will be awarded for every event and the teams of the three fastest boats in each event will split the event's point pool. The event pool equals 5 points for each boat that rows the event. 50% of the pool is awarded to first place, 30% to second place and 20% to third place. A boat size adjustment will also be made. Points awarded for singles events will be multiplied by 1, doubles and pairs points will be multiplied by 2, fours and quads by 4 and eights by 6.

For example: A four placing second in an event with 20 boats will earn 120 points. There are 100 points (5 pts per boat x 20 boats = 100) in the pool. Second place earns 30% of the pool (30% of 100 = 30) and the points for a fours event is multiplied by the boat size multiplier of 4 (30 x 4 = 120.)
