Junior Inter-Regional Trials

Dates

The trials will take place on the morning of Sunday 10th March 2019 at Dorney Lake, with the main regatta in Peterborough on Saturday 27th April. The trials format will be a time trial over 1000m, with a rolling start. The main regatta is a 1000m multi-lane race with stake boat start.

Selection

In order to combine both the need to select the fastest team, but also to encourage and develop growth at junior level, juniors will only be eligible for selection in one boat (excluding the eights). Juniors are invited to trial in multiple categories, but will not be selected in both if they win multiple trials. 

The Team Manager retains the right to select the team, and this will be done in discussion with the coaches of winning crews after the trials. This will also take into account the regatta timetable, the order of which is non-negotiable.

Marshals and Volunteers

Each club will be expected to provide at least one marshal for the trials, and possibly more dependent on the number of entries made. It is absolutely imperative that this is adhered to, as last year we suffered a number of problems when marshals failed to show up. Any club not presenting marshals to assist with the running of the event may find that they are penalised. We are all running the event as volunteers, and it simply cannot run without the clubs pitching in to assist.

Timings

Will be confirmed nearer the time. The briefing will likely be at 8am, with the racing finished by 12pm. The planned order of the divisions will be quads, fours, doubles, singles. Please advise if you have any unavoidable equipment clashes on your entry and we will do our best.
