RACING for Senior and Junior, Open and Women's crews in coxed fours, will be in divisions with 4 races per division at 2-hourly intervals. Each team shall consist of 4 rowers, a cox, a poleman and a judge equipped with a bicycle. Men and women will race in separate divisions, with starting order drawn taking into account last year’s finish order. The aim is to finish as high in the order as possible at the end of the day, and so secure a better starting position next year. Doubling up or sharing of equipment or coxes is not permitted.
MEDALS will be awarded to the crews at the head of the Open and Women’s first divisions at the end of the day's racing. Members of crews that bump in each cycle of races without being bumped will each be awarded a mini blade trophy.
