Restricted entries

*Subject to change for 2020*

Entries are restricted to one entry per club per event, up to a maximum of 18 entries per event (determined by the time of entry into system). All entry and fee deadlines are to be observed.

Additional/Second entries will be added to fill out the races up to the maximum of 18 crews for each event. Additional/Second entries will receive priority according to their time of entry into the system. Additional/Second entries will be able to advance to finals and score points.

There will be Time Trials (TT) for the U19 1X's and the U19 2-'s, and entries will not be restricted. The finals will be seeded from the TT. There will be no hot seating of equipment for the TT.

Late Entries

  • Late entries will only be accepted if they do not create additional heats and are received before noon on Monday April 6, 2020.
  • Late entries will be assessed at double the regular entry fee, i.e. $34 per competitor per event.


Scratches will be accepted without penalty up to noon on Monday, April 6th. Thereafter, a scratch fee equal to the race fee per event will be levied. Failure to pay this fee would result in disqualification from all events for the Club concerned.

A race

A minimum of three entries must be received to constitute a race.


Entry fees for the whole regatta must be paid in full by Friday April 24th. No crew will be allowed on the water whose fees have not been paid. Please note: there will be no refund of entry fees should weather conditions cause cancellation of races. All the expenses for the regatta are incurred prior to the event. Fees are C$17.00 per competitor per event. The Rowing Canada per seat fee of $3.25 per seat and the Rowing BC per seat fee of $3.50 will be calculated separately and added to your invoice. Race fees include the full buffet lunch on Sunday following the completion of racing.

Fee table

  • 8+ : $153

  • 4+ : $85
  • 2x : $34

Events Offered

We will be limiting the number of entries to 18 per race, except for the U19 1X and U19 2- which will be open for TT's. When a race is full you will be put on a waiting list. We will also be charging a scratch fee equal to the race fee for all races scratched after the scratch dead line, so make sure you pick your entries carefully.

The U19 1X, U19 2- and U19 8+ events will run at special times, regardless of how the weather affects the rest of the regatta. Details of the sessions of racing are given on the Event Schedule page.


Classifications will apply to both sculling and sweep, i.e. if you row U19 sweep events you must also row U19 sculling events.

Event Eligibility


Points are awarded for crews that place in finals according to the table below. For heats, half points are awarded. Points are not awarded for exhibition crews (including second entries).

For the technically minded among you, the points for a place are the points for the previous place multiplied by 0.7071.


Gold, silver, and bronze medals will be awarded for all finals. Many races also carry one or more trophies.
