General Event Information

Start Time
Racing will start at 8:30 am each week and generally be concluded by 10.00 am, depending on the number of heats required.

Bow Numbers
Bow numbers will be used for all events and will be available for collection from 7.30am. A deposit of $10.00 will be payable and no change will be given. If you leave a $50.00 deposit, this will be returned to you when you bring the number back.  For races on the Yarra, bow numbers must be collected from MUBC and returned by 10.30am.

Fees:  
The annual fee to register with the VSA is $25.00.

The cost of entering each race is $7.00.

 

Entry:

You can (must) enter on-line through the link on the home page.

 



Weekly Confirmation and Scratching


Having registered and entered for multiple events over several weeks, competitors must confirm or scratch their race entry by email to:   wintersculling@hotmail.com   before 6.00pm on Monday each week.


We need confirmations or scratchings to ensure that we include everyone who wants to race, but not people who don't plan to turn up. These emails should have the subject shown as follows: "J . Smith entry 26/7 confirmed"  or " J . Smith   entry 26/7 scratch" , so that the email does not need to be opened by the person processing entries.

 

If you do not confirm your entry, we may not include you in the race for that week .

Entries will be collated and starting order and times finalised in time for this information to be published on the wintersculling.com.au website by Friday, under the Draws section of the website. The starting order and times will also be displayed at MUBC at 7:30 am Saturday.


No late entries will be accepted ,
because this causes delay in race starts, inconveniencing all competitors.

(Please don't ask to be the exception.)
