  • When: Friday 1 - Sunday 3 March 2024 (3-day regatta)
  • What: North Island schools competing for supremacy in 52 events, and preparing to challenge the South Islanders at Maadi.

SAFETY BRIEFING 7:00PM Wednesday 28 February

The safety briefing will take place at 7:00PM on Wednesday 28 February via Zoom (see terms & conditions for link). 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.

Declaration forms

Reminder: schools must complete and return their declaration forms before they are able to compete at the NISSC Regattas. The declaration forms were attached to the email confirmation of entries. That email went to the Sports Coordinator address on record and the "entries contact" address provided during online entry.

The declarations need to be: checked (especially birth dates), printed, signed by the Principal, scanned, and emailed to the regatta organisers in accordance with the instructions in the declarations.

REGATTA ENTRIESopen for supplementaries and changes

The online regatta entry system is OPEN for Supplementary Entries, Scratchings, and Substitutions. The entry limits remain in place and will not be changed. Close off will be 8:00AM on Thursday 29 February.

SUPPLEMENTARY Entries

The supplementary entry system caters for limited late entries. It re-opens for late entries only for events where there would otherwise be an empty lane during heats racing. The entry limits will be progressively loosened while supplementary entries are open.

Supplementary limits are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Supplementary entries can only be made using the schools' existing squad and, unlike during standard entry, you do not need to go through the "update entries" process. 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.

Scratchings

These are effective as soon as the scratching is confirmed online. You need to be careful when making a scratching as you cannot reverse it online. It is unlikely to be possible to reverse a scratching at all once made.

The availability of supplementary entries can also rise as scratchings are made. However, scratching a crew does not guarantee a supplementary entry will become available (if you rely on that happening you can get sorely disappointed!).

Substitutions

These take effect as soon as the substitution is confirmed online. Unlike during standard entry you do not need to go through the "update entries" process.

Strict crew change Rules are in force (see Rule 13). You can change a crew multiple times. Each time you do it will be compared against the crew that was entered.

Medical substitutions

IMPORTANT: it is now possible to submit a pre-regatta medical substitution online. In such cases you have to follow up the susbtitution application with supporting medical evidence of the injury or illness.

This is only necessary if the student will recover from their illness or injury in time to be substituted back into the crew (which will require a medical clearance).

If the student will not recover in time for the regatta then a standard substitution should be submitted.

Squad changes

Squads are now locked off as the entered students are listed in the declarations signed by school principals.

If you need to add students to your squad please contact Andrew: [email protected].

SISSC

While North Island schools are competing on Lake Karāpiro for recognition as the best the North Island has to offer their South Island counterparts will be do the same thing up at the 2024 Meridian South Island Champs on Lake Ruataniwha. Keep a watch on both regattas for indicators of who may claim the top spot at Maadi!
