Rules of Entry

Competitors are limited to three events, of which only two can be doubles

First time competitors are limited to two events

Competitors must be in school year 4 or above

Competitors aged 8 cannot compete in doubles events, only 10 and under singles, and U14 canoe

Competitors aged 9-10 can compete in the 10 and under singles, and the U14 canoe. They may compete in the 10 and under doubles provided the committee consider they have the necessary skill level to safely race doubles

Under 14s cannot compete in either the U18 or adult events

Under 18s cannot compete in adult events

It is the age of the competitor on Regatta Day that determines whether they are eligible to enter a particular event

Many events are only open to residents of the Hemingfords or residents of the old county of Huntingdonshire. Eligibility by residence will be strictly observed. The Vicars' Sculls is open to current residents of, and those born in, the Hemingfords. The Raymond Brook Cup is open to former residents of the Hemingfords. Otherwise people no longer living in the Hemingfords cannot enter events that are restricted to those residing in the Hemingfords

Competitors must ensure they are eligible to enter events. The committee's decision on any question of eligibility will be final. Lists of events and the eligibility requirements for each event are listed alongside the Races summary

In order to confirm eligibility all competitors must include their name, address, date of birth and a contact phone number on each entry form. Entries without these details will be discarded. Anyone who gives false information on their entry form will be disqualified from entry

The full names, addresses, and dates of birth for both competitors must be included on entry forms for doubles events. Entries with 'AN Other' or similar will be invalid and will be discarded

Anyone wishing to enter an event where eligibility is 'by invitation' can only enter at the invitation of the committee. An approach to the committee for permission to enter must be made, in writing, to the the Chair before submission of the entry form - please use the Contact Us page

The Regatta Committee reserves the right to withdraw, by blind draw, entrants from oversubscribed events to reduce the number of races. No entrant will be withdrawn from more than one event; all entrants will be guaranteed at least one event
