A huge entry of gigs are expected for Caradon’s 3 Rivers event on March 5th.
The organisers have confirmed that the course will remain the same to last year.
With a record number of 80 gigs entered, Leanne Woodward told GigRower “we would be grateful if all clubs could adhere to the following points:
ARRIVAL, LAUNCHING AND REGISTRATION:
- All gigs must arrive by 9.00 a.m. latest. Those that can arrive earlier should do so, to help ease congestion.
- If any clubs can bring their gigs prior to Saturday, that would be a big help.
- Clubs must have their own members on the slipway when their gig(s) is being launched so as to take charge of it and row it to the beaches or pontoons.
- Please can each club send a member to the registration point (in the Sailing Club) to register their crews and pay the entry fees. They will need to know which of their crews is rowing which gig.
- Due to the number of gigs attending on the day, can we please ask that you label all of your trailers with the name of the gig and your club name, so that it is clearly visible, in order to make retrieval of your trailer after racing as easy as possible.
- There are still yachts stored in the Sailing Club car park for winter maintenance, please could we ask all rowers to take care not to hit the hulls of the yachts with their oars as they walk past. Thank you.
- All races will be run under CPGA rules and all gigs must carry a working VHF radio.
- The first race (Iadies) will start at 11.00 a.m. prompt, so all gigs need to launched and on the water by 10.30 a.m.
- Each crew will be allocated a heat and berth. You MUST line up in the heat you are allocated. All racing is timed and if you do not line up in your correct heat, your start time will not be adjusted accordingly and therefore your race time will be inaccurate.
- All crews must warm up lower side of the bridges (i.e. Sailing Club side) until called up by the Starter.
- The start will be called on the radio and the starter will also have a flag. There will be approx 2 minutes between the start of each heat. When the 2 minutes is up, the starter will drop the flag for the purposes of timings, so please start to assemble yourselves behind the heat before you, ready for your heat to be called. The starter will not be able to wait for you if you are not on the start line when your heat is due to be set off.
- Please remember that all timings are attached to the gig not the Club.
- Loading gigs after the mens race – PATIENCE WILL BE REQUIRED! There are two slipways: Each gig will be told which slipway to use.
- Do not come onto the slipway until told to do so by a Caradon Members who will get your trailers ready.
- No gigs are to be loaded up on the slipways: Once the gig is back on the trailer, and the bow rope tied down, they will be moved back to their storage space for clubs to load up ready to be towed away.
- No towing vehicles to go on any grass areas.
- No towing vehicles to be brought to trailers until you are ready to leave, to ease congestion.
- The presentation will take place in the Sailing Club following the racing, where food and drink will be available. A full list of results will be emailed to all clubs after the event. Paper copies will not be handed out on the day.
