Cambridge Nines Regatta 2017

This year's Cambridge Nines regatta will take place on Sunday 28th May, starting at 13:00. Entries close at 23:00 on Monday 22nd May.

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.

Please submit your entries on-line where you can pay via transfer,
cheque (our first time using this system so please email if you have a


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.

College crews - 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.

CRA crews will be organised according to ability (please put details
into notes on form)

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.
