Coaches Coxswain meeting at 6:30 am.
REMINDER: All PYR events are 1500m Races with the exception of U14/Novice (1000m) and Dashes (500m). The change from 2000m in years’ past to 1500 m is due to the volume of flights and anticipated high heat index.

Novice and U14 Events
You asked…and we listened.
Given numerous requests for Novice events, we have added flights for both Boys and Girls Singles and Quads for 2018. Similar to the Novice 4x event, the Novice 1x races will be 1000m.
We have also expanded U14 racing to include both Boys and Girls U14 4x’s as well as Boys/Girls/Mixed 8+.
DEFINITION OF A NOVICE. For PYR 18, a Novice shall be any athlete who did not compete in a rowing race PRIOR to January 1. Please note that this excludes from the Novice category any sweep rower who raced prior to January 1 but is sculling for the first time this summer. The Novice categories are intended for those athletes new to racing within this calendar year. In addition, all U14 athletes may race in Novice events, regardless of prior experience.
