IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE FOR COMPETITORS AND COACHES: The Met Office has issued a Yellow weather warning for Sunday for possible thunderstorms and heavy showers. The situation is being closely monitored and will be continuously monitored on Sunday. If thunderstorms occur during the Regatta, a safety plan will be implemented that includes those on the water getting to the shore as soon as possible. This will mean coming ashore at MAABC/QBC, returning to a crew’s club if nearby or going to the nearest safe location. Crews on the water will be given directions by Regatta officials. Please comply with all directions. Those on land should not stand in open spaces or under tall trees, and where possible, take shelter inside a building. As heavy rain is a possibility, it is strongly recommended crews have a wet top available. Coaches of juniors should ensure their crews are briefed on this message.

The on-the-day results will be available via EasyRegatta and tweeted via the @bm_regatta Twitter account.

Regatta documentation

If the regatta is over-subscribed what process will be used to decide which entries to accept and which to reject?

We recognise that there are only so many hours in the day that people want to go racing, and also to volunteer to support and run the regatta.  In the event of the regatta being oversubscribed we will reduce the number of entries down to a number that will produce the quantity of races that will fit into this time frame.  Our priority order for choosing what to accept and what to reject will be as follows:

  1. Reject entries in events that only have one or two entries.
  2. Reject entries in events that only have three entries.
  3. Reject entries from single scullers that have doubled-up into crew boats (where the crew boat is still in a viable event).
  4. Progressively reject events that have four entries starting with the smallest boat class, ie reject 1x, then 2x/- etc, as our aim is to try and give as many people as possible an opportunity to race.
