Race Pack & Briefing
Race Pack Collection
Someone from each crew (ideally the coxswain) needs to collect their race pack including crew numbers, souvenir T-shirts, program, race instructions, crew grid positions & location of on course safety / support boats and emergency contacts from the Race Registrar.
Details for 2017 race pack collection: Hawthorn Rowing Club Friday 24th November from 6pm - 7pm. It is strongly encouraged that you collect your pack at this time. We hope to have the T-Shirts available around 4pm. Note, there is NO deposit required for bow numbers.
As a fall-back measure, we will continue to have the Race Registrar in front of Mercantile Rowing Club from 9am to 11am on the morning of the race. PLEASE do not wait until after 11am to collect the numbers. (T-shirts not collected at the Friday briefing session can be collected at Hawthorn after you have raced.)
All crew numbers, including those worn by the cox and bow, are to be placed in the labelled bins on the Hawthorn landing immediately after getting your boat out of the water.
Competitors Briefing Session
A competitors briefing session will be held at Hawthorn Rowing Club Friday 24th November at 6pm. The briefing will address:
- advice for coxswains negotiating the race course
- race rules and safety
- emergency arrangements and obtaining medical assistance if required
- “need to know” issues for competing on race day including hazards and penalties
We will also have additional programs available for purchase at this time.
