A couple of years ago, as an experiment, we changed the way weorganised your entries into races to make the event smoother andminimise delays. This worked well so we'd like to keep the same formatin 2017.
College crews - we will rank crews in order of their standing at theend of the last May Bumps and pick out groups of 8 crews to formdivisions. This will mean you'll be racing crews that are likely inthe same Mays division as you, but there is a chance you could beracing a crew in a division higher or lower at some point.
CRA crews will be organised according to ability (please put detailsinto notes on form)
Entries will close on Monday the 22nd of May at 23:00 and the draw will comeout on Tuesday 23rd of May.
*Last-minute scratchings or odd numbers of entries in a division mayrequire a crew to be given a bye through to the next round. This mayreduce the number of races, or could necessitate a wait while othercrews race.
