Updates for Sunday June 4th

Sunday, June 4  FINALS : Date of issue: June 3 2023

 After lengthy discussions with the CSSRA Regatta Committee we have determined that due the continuing concerns regarding weather conditions all crews that have completed a semi-final or a heat will receive medals based on their finish times.

All crews that did not have a chance to compete in their heat or semi: these races will run as timed heats with the three fastest times receiving the medals.

Racing will commence at 8am and the centres will be at 10 min and 7 min in the same heat. Races will be held in sequential order beginning with Event #1, 19, 21, followed by the completion of Saturday’s schedule with Finals #36,38,39 inserted. 

All crews that weighed-in for their heat or semi-final do not need to re-weigh in. All athletes in a straight Final need to weigh in between 6am to 8am on Sunday.

Coach’s meeting will commence promptly at 7:15AM at the Clerks Booth.  Please see Linda in the Regatta office for paper copies of the Sunday Final Draw for coaches. 1 per school will be available.

All medals will be presented on the Island for all events, gold, silver, bronze at the Neil Campbell Rowing Centre. Please note we will post a schedule for medal presentations at the coaches meeting in the am.

Good Luck and great racing.
