Parent Roster for assisting at ACT Championships on 3 March 2017
See roster. Thank you for helping out with the running of this regatta - this is the one regatta for the year that Marist are required to assist. Please be available 10 minutes before your scheduled time so we have a smooth handover of tasks.
- All finish line positions are to meet at the finish line - judging hut.
- Platform Marshall's and Weston Park positions are to meet at the Rowing ACT tent at Weston Park.
The spreadsheet of crews for both Saturday and Sunday is available. Please take note of the changes in red text - some boys are not rowing in their normal crews / age groups and some coxswains are coxing additional crews.
Boys can come and go over the weekend and do no thave to stay for the full two days but must be back at the correct location to pick up their boat at least 90min before their scheduled race. Please don't be late. Please also advise your coaches if you are leaving as their will be some vacancies and crew conflicts where we will need to replace some members of the crew.
Please note that this is a different format of a regatta than most people are familiar with. This regatta has four sessions:
- Saturday morning
- Saturday afternoon
- Sunday morning
- Sunday afternoon
Each session is self contained in that if there are heats then the finals will occur in that session.
There are some races that are straight finals but most have heats. There are non championship events (competency based) which are a race with no heats and their are championship events (age based).
PROGRESSION for events with heats:
- 2 Heats: 1st-3rd > Final
- 3 Heats: 1st-2nd > Final
- 4 Heats: 1st > Final, plus 3 next fastest crews (in the event)
- 5 Heats: 1st > Final, plus 2 next fastest crews (in the event)
- 6 Heats: 1st > Final, plus next fastest crew (in the event)
The uncoloured rows in the program indicate where there are finals. The uncoloured races only go ahead if you make the finals. So please do not leave the regatta without checking with your coach if you can leave.
Medals are awarded for both championship and non-championship events. The medals will be provided to Marist during the coming week and handed out next weekend.
Weather forecast - mid 20's, light winds, rain and some thunderstorms - perfect conditions for rowing !!
All boys are to be at the regatta 90 minutes or more before their scheduled race on both Saturday and Sunday. Boys are encouraged to stay and support and assist over the weekend, especially near the end of the regatta each day as boats need to be returned to CRC. Boys are to check before their race where the boat is to be returned to as it can depend on where they finish in their race. Please note that there are finals and in some cases we do not know which boys make it through to the finals until the results are published. If you plan to leave the regatta please advise your coach.
