    Ages should be from birthdays. Increases ASAP. BUT with so many small clubs, the ages should be AVERAGE AGE GROUPS of 50 and 60. This would give clubs more flexibility, eg., a vet crew could have one 55-year old if they included also a 45 year-old, etc. Older and averages would give better “B” crews. Vets

    I apparently miss the logic that increasing Vets age will create more opportunities for B crews. In Holland many Vets/almost Vets row still faster than most of the younger ones, thus are the A crew themselves. So there is room for B crews…. I like the suggestion of having an average (actual) age of a Vets crew, e.g. 45 years. In the current model I doubt the fact that it will stimulate Vets to row longer. In my own crew, we would have the situation that we may have to wait 7 years instead of 2 years to be eligible to participate….we’ll see if we by then still exist as crew to participate at WPGC

    I am 65 but still row actively and would like to race, the current system is very inflexible. Either average age group crews, or an age group crew i.e. 60-70 years etc would be ok.

  4. Here in the US most of our club members are over 45, and many of us are over 60. I think the best way to approach the age limit puzzle is to add an over 60 “super-duper vets” category.
