Arrangements for visiting clubs

Colin LawsonNews

Visiting clubs must use Car Park A (the rugby field) for boat trailers and towing vehicles plus any minibuses used for competitor transport. There will be NO trailer parking at Durham Amateur Rowing Club in 2021.

A number of changes are in place for 2021 due to Covid-19 and competitors should  ensure they abide by the Competitors Instructions which will be published with the draw. Competitors names and details provided via the BROE system will be used for Test and Trace purposes in the run up to, during and after the competition.

All crews will be boating from Durham ARC in 2021. Boat storage/trestling areas are available on the rugby field.  This will allow marshals to call races in order and limit the time that crews are waiting on the water or potentially in close proximity to each other.

At the time of the regatta, government recommendations indicate that group sizes of up to 30 people, outside, are allowed.  We ask that visiting clubs adhere to this requirement at all times in the trailer/boat park, at Durham ARC and on the racecourse.

Face coverings must be worn by competitors when carrying boats to and from the boating area and at all times when they are within the bounds of Durham ARC, unless there is a medical reason for not doing so.

Oars should be stored in trailers, or similar, when not in use. They should only be brought to the landing stages as you are about to go afloat and should be removed as soon as practical after de-boating.  Crews are reminded that carrying and cleaning of their own equipment remains their responsibility.

A one-way system will be in effect for crews carrying boats from the boat park to the landing stage and vice versa. Please follow marshals instructions.

Refreshments will be available from the outside Café/Beer Garden at Durham ARC.  Rules for ordering and being seated at tables and table service will apply all weekend. Competitors should be aware that there is a cashless system for ordering and should come prepared if they wish to avail themselves of refreshments.

Durham ARC may have additional rules in place, please adhere to these when using their facilities.
