Fairness decision: time trials on Sunday
Due to the expected increase in windspeed and angle, the jury has decided to employ a fairness protocol, which entails the following changes:
– All Sunday morning heats will be rowed as time trials, for all direct finals, facultative* time-trials for lanes are implemented
– All Sunday afternoon races will be rowed in their regular format: side by side
– The Corporate Eight field start will be delayed by 30 minutes.
The changed schedule is available on here.
For each direct final, a time-trial is implemented. The fastest crews from this time-trial will be allocated to the favourable lanes in the final. If you do not take part in the time-trial, you can still race the final in one of the remaining lanes. These lanes are allocated via random draw. Details can be found on the regatta page.
