In events 10, 13 and 16 the average age of crews must be at least 35,

coxswains).  A 5 second per year handicap given for each year over 35
will be used to determine the final order of finish.

A 6 second per year handicap given for each year over 50 will be used
to determine the final order of finish.

For an event to be a medal event, a minimum of three entries must be
received, with at least two organizations participating.  The Regatta
Committee will consider running non-medal events with fewer than three
entries and/or two organizations.  Separate medals for men and women
will be given only in events marked M&W.

Event 8, Youth/Novice Singles is actually two events--Youth Singles and
Novice Singles.  Event 18, Club/Youth Eights is also two events--Club
Eights and Youth Eights.

Competitors may race in more than one event.
