Entries for the 2017 race opened at noon on Friday 22 September and closed at 5 p.m. on Tuesday 31 October.

Intermediate 3 events are offered for open and women's coxed fours (4+).

Please note that this is not a masters event. Competitors - excluding coxswains - must have been born before 1st September 2001.

These events are aimed at crews with racing experience who are just below the sweep points requirement for the Fours Head. Crews must have a minimum of four sweep points, and the events will be capped at a maximum of 30 crews. 

  • Entries will initially be allocated to the first 15 paid entries in each category (open and women). 
  • The minimum-points requirement cannot be programmed into the online entry system, so the points statuses of all competitors will be checked by the entries secretary prior to acceptance. Underpointed crews will be e-mailed, and asked if they wish to make a substitution, or to withdraw. 
  • If a potential substitute would mean the crew is underpointed, the crew will not be permitted to race.
