New competition framework

Events will be split into bands containing competitors of similar ranking. This will be clearly indicated on the start order. Senior events will be banded based on a combination of CRI and old points. Based on our expected entries after review of previous years, it is likely the Senior events will split into Beginner and Intermediate events.

Masters events

Masters events will run in age groups, but may be combined using the conventional handicap system (except for MasN).

† The Mixed Masters Novice event will be run as a single event across both divisions.

Masters crews may be moved to the appropriate senior category in the event of insufficient entries. Please state on your entry if you do not want to race senior.


Prizes will be awarded for any event in which three or more boats enter and at least two compete.


Competitors are encouraged to race in more than one division. You are reminded that boats must display British Rowing standard identity codes and must be licensed for the Thames.
In the event of oversubscription, priority will be given to eights, fours and quads.
