Details of the event and how to enter in 2016.
NOT YET updated for 2017
Entries will open on BROE on 7th September 2016 at 8pm and close when 550 entries in total have been received across divisions 1 and 3, or, at the latest, September 14th 6pm.
Divisions and Events
We are maintaining the same general format with some small changes to division allocations in order to try and even out the anticipated entry between the main 2 divisions.
In 2016 the Wallingford Long Distance Sculls will be held over 3 divisions, Division 1 and 3 held over 4250m and Division 2 over 1500m. The second division will continue to be open to entries from J13 and J14 coxed quads, J13 and J14 double sculls and J14 single sculls, as well as J15 single sculls and double sculls. Division 2 will be limited to 40 entries. Note that Division 2 now starts immediately before Division 3.
Following the success in 2014 and 2015, we are permitting quads and doubles in BOTH division 1 and division 3. This enables improved doubling up possibilities in crew boats and allows for more efficient boat doubling. We also have Novice coxed quads for both men and women. These are very much aimed at crews who, whilst competent, are in their first year of competing, and not quite ready for the challenge of racing coxless.
There have been a few tweaks to both divisions so please check the chart below:
