To all Clubs – with the timetables
We are pleased to publish the draws for the Molesey Regattas next weekend. It will help if you can carefully note the following:-
a) The Saturday Regatta draw proved somewhat awkward, not so much because of the numbers but rather the sheer volume of doubling requests. We have tried very hard to fit all of these in, but it is still possible that a clash might come about in rounds after the first. If there are any problems with the draw as it is now, please get in touch asap. On Regatta day, if a clash become apparent after your first heat please visit Race Control immediately.
b) The Sunday Regatta was again over-subscribed, but only very slightly. To produce a shorter day for all concerned, the timing of races is again quite tight and it is again, therefore, essential that your crews boat in good time OR any problem is referred to an Umpire or Raft Marshal asap. Also, it is clearly in your crews’ interests that you keep your ‘phone turned on and audible at all times.
c) For both days. We anticipate a few scratchings between now and the weekend. Please ensure that any scratch you make is recorded on BROE in good time, and also note carefully that there will be NO row-overs in any heat or semi-final. We shall endeavour to advise those whose opposition has dropped-out, but it would be helpful if you could check when collecting crew numbers.
BROE will be closed for subs at 0800 Friday 19th for MAR, and 1900 Saturday 20th for MJR. Any subs to be made after those times must be advised to Race Control well before the crew’s first race. You are reminded that undeclared subs will render a winning crew liable to disqualification, and give any crews involved problems with individuals’ points records.
