Race day is fast approaching & we cannot wait to see everyone! Entries are up from 2017 (yay!) & we are hard at work getting everything ready for a fair, safe, fun regatta. Along those lines, we have some lane restrictions due to course conditions PLEASE READ BELOW for further information.

- Pairs & Singles racing 2,000m will NOT be racing in Lane 6. On top of our pairs & singles completely staying out of Lane 6 we are limiting its use whenever possible. 
- What does this mean? The progression from events with heats & finals changes slightly.

  • If a 2k Pair/Single event has TWO HEATS- The Top 2 places from each heat will progress along with the Next Best Time (giving us a 5 boat final).
  • If a 2k Pair/Single event has THREE HEATS- The Winner of each heat progresses along with the Two Next Best Times (giving us a 5 boat final).  

- Doubles, Quads, Fours, & Eights will have 6 boat finals when needed. Currently, the only race advancing 6 boats from heats to final is Event #36, Men's Junior 2x. 

- All 1,000m races will use all 6 lanes, below Strawberry Mansion Bridge is clear with the worst spots being between the 2k start & the bridge.

This change in progression IS reflected in the online schedule & is the reason we needed to keep the schedule offline until today. We promise, we aren't trying to be secretive!
