New for 2019 PLEASE READ

****NEW for 2019****

1. At the discretion of the LOC, some races for events with large entries may be run on Friday. In scheduling Friday races, we will try to minimize the impact on out-of-town competitors.

2. Entries will be capped at 16 for all events except the Open M and Open W 1x.   Junior entries will be capped at 4 entries/club/event, with the rest going on waitlist.

3. The RBC seat fee of $3.50/seat will be in effect (it will be automatically added to your invoice in RegattaCentral).

4.  We are offering separate U17 and U19 2x events. If there are not enough entries, the events will be combined.

5. Dash for Cash 8+ (M and W): 4 boat straight final, held as the last events on Saturday.  Composite crews encouraged. Winner takes half the base entry fee, with the other half going to support the VCRC Junior program (see regatta package for more details.)

6. Bow marker deposits: will not be collected as part of the entry fee. If do not turn in your bow marker by the end of the regatta, you will be charged $20 (per lost bow marker).

Changes from 2017 and 2018, still in effect for 2019.

1. Early Bird deadline March 20. After this date, entry fee increases by $10/seat.

2. RCA seat fee of $3.25/seat will be added to your RegattaCentral invoice.

3. DOG is now using RegattaCentral (for registration) and RegattaMaster (for results). No more spreadsheets!

4. Results will be posted on RegattaMaster and to Twitter. They will also be posted using a "graphical tree" format on site (hard copy).

5.  For the premiere events (Open M and W 1x, Mixed Masters 2x) there will now be more time between the final race of the Second Chance tree and the Championship Final.

6. Draw and progression have been refined to reduce the chances of the same crews meeting again (in the second chance tree).

7. Masters Handicap (Garrett-Zezza system) has been updated. It should be ``more fair` for those U50.
