Race Schedule & Day sheets
The draft Race Schedule is available and clearly sets out how racing will be conducted Friday and Saturday. Due to the increased entry numbers there is a slightly different approach this year: C Finals and Semi-finals will now be held on the same day as the heats they qualified from.
Day sheets are available online and will be updated regularly. You can filter the online version to give you a school-specific day sheet (click the cog icon at the top of the table). Hard copy day sheets can be obtained at the lake. They're free if you purchase a programme of events or have a coach ID, otherwise can be obtained for a gold coin donation.
1658 pupils (including 51 reserves) from 89 schools entered in 1086 crews. 270 Races will be required to complete the regatta and find the winners of all 50 events.
SAFETY BRIEFING 6:00PM Thursday 8 March
OUTCOME: Excellent turn out. Only two schools not in attendance; both were still travelling and made arrangements with the Chief Umpire for a briefing - so their crews can race on Saturday.
The safety briefing will take place at 6:00PM on Thursday 8 March at Lake Karapiro. Adult Safety Officers are required to attend and team managers and coaches are encouraged to attend.
Attendance at this meeting by the school's Adult Safety Officer is compulsory for those schools wishing to compete at the regatta. This is a regatta condition arising from the requirements of the NZSSRA Rules as well as for safety and KRI's insurance purposes.
The supplementary entry system re-opens entries for many events where there would otherwise be an empty lane during heats racing. Because they are not creating extra races in an already busy schedule supplementary entries are not subject to the crew limits placed on standard entries.
Supplementary limits are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Supplementary entries can only be made using the schools' existing squad and, unlike standard entries, do not need to be submitted in order to be entered. Instead, they are entered as soon as the crew selection is confirmed (or if somebody else got the last spot the crew will be rejected).
The availability of supplementary entries declines as supplementary crews are entered but can also rise as scratchings are made - so it pays to keep an eye on availability and it is also important to scratch crews as soon as possible.
ENTRY LIMITS 2 crews per school per event
Note: entry limits do not apply to supplementary entries
Due to the scale of entries received for this regatta it has had entry limits in place for many seasons now. The usual limit of 2 crews-per-school-per-event will apply. The limit applies to all events other than eights.
Schools must also be aware the compressed nature of this regatta means there should be no expectation any pupil who is entered in more than one event will have sufficient time available to compete in all of those events. There is only enough time to be able to hold semi-finals for the most heavily entered events and this brings together events that might usually be spread well apart during heats and finals.
NZSSSC School Team Eligibility criteria pupils "new" to a school
The NZSSSC School Team Eligibility criteria have been revised and the new criteria take effect this year. An updated article about the NZSSSC School Team Eligibility criteria is available to help members assess whether or not each of their pupils is considered new to their school. Schools are limited to 3 "new" pupils in an eight and 1 "new" pupil in other boats ("new" looks back over the past 2 years).
While North Island schools are competing on Lake Karapiro for recognition as the best the North Island has to offer their South Island counter-parts will be doing the same thing up at the 2012 Meridian South Island Champs on Lake Ruataniwha. Keep a watch on both regattas for indicators of who may claim the top spot at Maadi!
