Series & Start Times

We run six series annually, plus some special events (such as the Ex-Commodores' Cup team racing in August). Trophies are awarded at a Trophy Evening social event in November.

Please see the calendar for series dates. Race start times are as follows:

  • Saturdays: 14.00 (two races)
  • Wednesdays: 18.30 (one race)
  • Sundays & Bank Holidays: 10.30 (format varies)

Please arrive approximately 1 hour before the race start, to allow an assessment of fleet size and conditions to be made.

For results, please see the results page.

Officer Of the Day (OOD) Rota

For the 2017 season we will be using a ‘rolling rota’ to decide who will be the Race Officer for club racing. When your name reaches the top of the list, it is your turn to do the OOD duty; when you do a duty, cross your name off the top of the list and write it at the bottom of the page in the boat store.

Please download the complete rota to see where you appear on the list at the start of the season. The top 10 people on the list will be published in every issue of Boat Park Chatter.
