All Competitors, Coaches & Coxswains MUST make themselves familiar with the Regatta Safety & Circulation Plans that can be downloaded from this page.

Coaches need to ensure the following:

  • That all crews are sufficiently competent to attach themselves to a stake boat & are capable to race circa 650m whilst navigating a gentle “s” bend course.

Crews should report to “Raft Control” in the boating area to register and collect numbers. When going afloat, crews should find their competition and try to paddle up to the Start together.  Allow no less than 20 minutes to get to the start for your race time. 

 Coaches & Supporters must note there is no cycling on the towpath beside the course.
