Cambridge Nines Regatta   iCal entry for this event

Sunday 28th May sees our annual 'Cambridge Nines' Spring Regatta.

 

This 1000m side-by-side race up the Long Reach is an enjoyable afternoon of racing in 8s, and the perfect preparation for May bumps. Come and practise those racing starts and size up the opposition in your division.

 

The regatta is a plate competition, meaning everyone will get at least two races. We'll run divisions back-to-back, so your racing should be complete in about 2.5 hours.* Pots will be awarded to the winning crews at the Cambridge '99 RC boathouse after the event and the club fielding the most winning crews will be awarded bonus prize of a slab of beer. Bar will be open until late and there will be a BBQ running.

   

A couple of years ago, as an experiment, we changed the way we organised your entries into races to make the event smoother and minimise delays. This worked well so we'd like to keep the same format in 2017.

 

We will rank crews in order of their standing at the end of the last May Bumps and pick out groups of 8 crews to form divisions. This will mean you'll be racing crews that are likely in the same Mays division as you, but there is a chance you could be racing a crew in a division higher or lower at some point.

 

Entries will close on Monday the 22nd of May at 23:00 and the draw will come out on Tuesday 23rd of May.

 

*Last-minute scratchings or odd numbers of entries in a division may require a crew to be given a bye through to the next round. This may reduce the number of races, or could necessitate a wait while other crews race.

 

Please direct any enquires to regatta@cambridge99.org and a member of the organising committee will get back to you.
