Champs Junior Sculling Head is back for BR and CRA competitors
Sadly we have had to cancel for 2018 due to forecast conditions causing too much of a risk to competitor and coach safety.
We’d like to thank all of the BR umpires and Champs members who had offered their time to make sure that the event ran smoothly and safely on Sunday. Unfortunately we can’t control the weather which has scuppered the best laid plans.
The 2019 event will take place on Sunday 10th March and we look forward to meeting you all then.

Div 1: 10:30, Div 2: 12:15, Div 3: 14:00.
There will be sufficient time between divisions to allow crews to double-up, and will permit boat sharing across divisions.
The course runs upstream from The Plough pub at Fen Ditton to the site of the old Penny Ferry pub at Chesterton (1450m). The race will use a rolling start on the Plough Reach.
There is excellent towpath access along the whole course, which makes it an ideal event for juniors. Bring a bike or your trainers and you will be metres away from your scullers!
ENTRIES ARE INVITED FOR:
1X & 2X (Open/Women’s J13, J14, J15, J16, J17 & J18), 4X+ (Open/Women’s J13, J14 & J15), 4X- (Open/Women’s J16, J17 & J18)
We are also inviting crews unable to compete at Eastern Region JIRR Trials to enter.
All visiting clubs must provide evidence of permission to boat from a Cambridge club before entries will be accepted. Please contact the Events Secretary if you would like assistance in finding a host club to boat from.
The entry fee is set at £10/seat. Coxes ride for free in 4X+
J13, J14, J15, J16, J17 & J18

Competitors who have not attained 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 or 18 years of age respectively before the first day of September preceding the event are eligible for the matching category.
Please note – doubling up is at the discretion of parents/coaches (please take account of the age/experience/stamina of the rowers when considering doubling up)
We recommend that where possible single sculls and double sculls (particularly J16-18) select divisions 1 & 2 as below; all quads select any division. These are recommendations and are not obligatory, in order to provide competing clubs with complete flexibility for boat sharing etc. but also giving the opportunity to compete in similar conditions with your opposition.

Division 2 Men’s 2X & Women’s 1X
