This is going to be a special one-off at the small but perfectly formed rowing venue
of Ebchester on the River Derwent. Although it hosted side-by-side racing for many
years in the past, doing this in quads is definitely not now possible (or at least
safe). Even singles and doubles side-by-side have issues with the narrowness. So
we a re looking at a series of events based on one at a time timed sprints over the
200 metre course.
Not sure yet if it will be a round robin format (like we have at present) or some
form of knockout or a head race type system. It will very probably just be in singles
(stable and maybe fine for the more experienced) and doubles (stable, coxed and uncoxed).
It will almost certainly be outside the main series points system, so just for fun!
It’s a beautiful location, so ideal for a just coming to watch and partaking of refreshments.
Details as soon as we have them!
