Scratches will be accepted without penalty up to noon on Friday, April 7th at the Brentwood Rowing Office. Thereafter, a scratch fee equal to the race fee per event will be levied. Failure to pay this fee would result in disqualification from all events for the Club concerned. No-shows will also be assessed at $25.00.

A race

A minimum of three entries must be received to constitute a race.


Entry fees for the whole regatta must be paid in full before the regatta starts on Friday April 28th. No crew will be allowed on the water whose fees have not been paid. Please note: there will be no refund of entry fees should weather conditions cause cancellation of races. All the expenses for the regatta are incurred prior to the event. Fees are C$16.00 per competitor per event. The  Rowing BC fee of $4.00 per day per athlete will be calculated separately and added to your invoice.

Event Schedule

The events are split into three groups. The first group contains all of the quads, and the second group contains all of the fours. Eights and doubles are spread between these two groups. The Junior A 1X and the Junior A 8+ events are in their own group. In the Junior A 1X events the heats will run as the last races of the night on Friday and the finals for the Junior A 1X will be run as the last races of the night on Saturday.

Scheduling the Weather

The weather has always been the most challenging part of the regatta and has sometimes made it difficult to complete the schedule. Please be aware that the weather does manage our races and changes to race times are always occurring. It is our full intention to finish racing around noon on Sunday.
