Prizes are offered for categories in which there are 3 or more boats entered. Prizes (engraved glass goblets) are awarded to winners of categories with 3 or more boats entered.
Unless an entrant is aiming for a course record (see below) and specifically asks not to be moved to a higher category; the Race Committee reserves the right to move competitors up one category where this will create races - for example from IM3 to IM2 or from MasD to MasC.
Performance against course records will be based on the category at which you race.
If you are aiming for a course record and don’t wish to be moved to a higher category, you should specifically state this in the notes section of your race entry on BROE; and the Race Committee will then not move you from your substantive category. Prizes are not awarded for course records.
Times and category winners are posted at the Isle of Ely Rowing Club as soon as they are available, and will be posted on the website as soon as practical afterwards.
