Dear Cambridge College Boat Clubs,

Entries are now open for this year's Clare Novices' Regatta. The Regatta
will be held from Thursday the 22nd to Saturday the 24th of November.

All the information about the Regatta, including the full rules and the
online entry system, can be found at http://www.clareboatclub.org.uk/cnr.
Please take the time to read through the rules.

The Regatta is the usual format of side-by-side racing over an 800m course.
There are four events: Men's Cup, Women's Cup, Men's Plate, Women's Plate.
The top crew of each sex should be entered into the Cup and other crews
into the Plate, unless you are entering 4 or more boats of one sex. In this
case, the top 2 crews enter the Cup. *The defining feature of the Regatta
is that no rower may have rowed or sculled in a race before 1st September
2011 and no cox may have steered a race before the same date.* Please see
the website for full details and if you are unsure as to whether or not a
rower satisfies the novice criteria then please don't hesitate to contact
me at Claregatta at gmail.com.

To enter crews, please visit the Online Entry page of the Regatta website.
The first individual to log in via Raven for each college will be able to
enter crews and grant another CRSid the ability to do the same. Entries are
£52 per crew and close at midnight ending Sunday 11th of November. Entries
submitted after this time may be refused and will be subject to an
increased fee of £60. If you have any problems with the system, please
contact me. Payment is preferably made by direct transfer (account details
available on the website) but cheques are also acceptable. Please make them
out to "Clare Novices' Regatta" and deliver them to Clare Boat Club, Clare
College Old Court by the entry deadline.

There will be a meeting for coaches and coxes on Sunday 18th November at
21:15 in the Great Hall, Clare College Old Court, the Sunday before the
Regatta. Safety and marshaling procedures will be explained and the draw
and order of racing will be distributed. All competing coxes must attend,
together with a senior representative from their college (such as a Lower
Boats Captain).

If you have any problems or questions please email me at this address,
claregatta at gmail.com.

King Regards,

Jordan Ward-Williams
CNR Senior Umpire
