Progression System for 2023
For each event, all crews will race against the clock in the heats, then the fastest 6 crews overall will race in the final. The lanes will be seeded so that the fastest crews get the better lanes. Events with 6 or fewer crews will be raced as straight finals.
The times for all crews, along with the draw for the final, will be available on-line at https://rowresults.co.uk/ballcup23.
This means that all competitors, crews and coaches need to note that all crews need to race to the line as there might be faster crews in the other heats. Do not slow down just because you are in the lead!
Trailers arriving early
It you wish to bring a trailer early, then you need to organise this with me BEFORE SATURDAY!! Trailers arriving on Saturday can only arrive between 17:00 and 18:00, when I will be on site. Please call me on 07767 345882 to organise this.
We will be using a start pontoon at 750m. There is a very useful document for crews about getting attached.
If you have athletes (or non-athletes) who would like to stake-boat, then please email me and I will give you a time slot. In previous years, the rowers have really enjoyed this, to the extent that we have almost had to forced them off to allow others on!
