United Hospitals Timetrials – November 2019

Crews will be started in three groups in order:

  1. Those crews sharing a boat and needing to hand over to another crew
  2. Those crews not sharing a boat
  3. Those crews who have had to wait for a boat from another crew

There will not be a set order for starting crews once the time trial is in progress.

  • Standard regatta circulation pattern throughout time trial
  • Rolling starts not standing starts please
  • Starter will name crew and say ‘go’ in advance of the timing line
  • Crews should proceed in accordance with standard navigation on the fairway
  • Crews being overtaken should allow the faster crew to take the centre of the fairway
  • Crews will be timed over the regatta course (from the UH flag at UL to the UH flag at MAA)

Ebb navigation pattern:

  • Ebb marshalling area – Surrey side around UL buoy, LINE ASTERN
  • After the finish crews should proceed without stopping through Chiswick Bridge and then turn promptly, returning to UL as usual in the Surrey inshore zone until reaching the second storm drain and then crossing over the fairway if it is safe to do so.

Flood navigation pattern (if required)

  • Flood marshalling area – below SHIP on Surrey side (except crews from TSS who will stay on Middlesex)
  • Crews turn and proceed upriver through Chiswick Bridge
  • At the finish (UL) crews must wind down promptly
  • Crews must follow the finish marshal’s instructions
  • The usual pattern for navigation will be to turn to Surrey around the UL buoy and then back to Middlesex (the ‘figure of eight’) in order to return to UL.

strict boating times, use of time trials, keeping crews on water with progression in a 'wave' format, very limited doubling up etc

Summary of regatta winners from 2009

Captains must ensure that they only enter competent crews and that their crews are properly prepared for the race. Captains must ensure that their crews must follow the standards for safety set out on the British Rowing Guide to Good Practice in Rowing, and particularly the requirement at section 2.1 to wear personal floatation devices where competitors cannot demonstrate the ability to meet the swimming standard or there is a medical problem which presents a risk that the competitor may become unconscious or immobile. The weather in December can be wet and cold! Captains must ensure that they only enter appropriately competent crews and that their crews are properly prepared for the race. Captains must ensure that their crews must follow the standards for safety set out on the British Rowing Guide to Good Practice in Rowing.
