General Information

The format of the event comprises singles and pairs on the Saturday. Doubles, quads (coxed and coxless), fours (coxed and coxless) and eights on Sunday.

Winter Time Trial Seat Fees are $6.60 inc GST.

The series winner for each category of boat is determined by a point score based on handicap times. Crews/scullers receive one point for each race they complete, plus one point for each opponent in that race that they beat on handicap time.

Eights, fours and quads are counted as being the same crew in the points tally if they have no more than a 50% change to the original crew over the Winter Time Trial Series. 

Entries

Entries for the Winter Time Trial Series will be handled through Rowing Manager.  Entries will close at 10pm on the Sunday of the weekend before the WTT.  

Clubs entering 4 boats or more across both days of the WTT weekend must provide 1 safety marshal each. Clubs entering more than 10 boats across the weekend must provide 2 safety marshals each.

The safety of competitors is paramount. RACT thanks all clubs in advance for providing these marshals.

The Course

The turn onto the Yarramundi Reach rowing course will take place on the 1800m start line however please note the marshal tinny at the turn does not provide a visual target for crews. Crews are to aim for the orange buoy located at the start line. The finish line is the first (most northern) white pole.

Please take the time to read the following information.

Instructions For Competitors

  • Withdrawals and substitutions are to be emailed to actra@rowingact.org.au
  • It is the responsibility of crews to ensure they are at the start on time (any crew who misses their allocated start time may be started at the end of the field). Crews should pay particular attention to the start time rather than boat number as some numbers may be missing.
  • Clubs should ensure that scullers and crews have the skill and experience to complete the course under adverse weather conditions.
  • Crews and scullers should take note of normal traffic rules on the way to the start.
  • Slower boats should allow room for faster boats to pass on the most advantageous line.
  • If you capsize during racing stay with your boat until a safety marshal arrives. Remember that your boat will float even when it is full of water provided your boat bungs are in place.

Bow Numbers

Bow numbers will be delivered to north side clubs (ANU, BMRC, Radford, Dara). Bow numbers for south side clubs will be available for collection from Canberra Rowing Club from 7:30am on the Saturday Time Trial day.

Officials

Safety marshals and other officials are required to meet at the Black Mountain Rowing Club at 8:45am on the morning of each trial for a briefing. Wherever possible bring a tinny and a megaphone and ensure your tinny has the correct safety equipment.

Clubs entering 4 boats or more across both days of the WTT weekend must provide 1 safety marshal each. Clubs entering more than 10 boats across the weekend must provide 2 safety marshals each.
