RegattaSport Dash for Cash

March 18 2019   

    The Royal Canadian Henley Regatta is please to announce that we will be extending our relationship with Regatta Sport and are excited to launch a new format for this years Regatta Sport Dash for Cash.
    The Regatta Sport Dash for Cash is a 500m Open Mixed (4 Women & 4 Men) eight race for charity. The event is held at the end of Saturdays Dash Finals (August 10th 2019) and is intended to be a ‘Fun’ race to celebrate a week of long, intense racing. Traditionally the entry cap for this event was limited to only seven entries. This event has been over subscribed over the past several years and has been a disappointment for those crews not selected in the lottery process. Your Host Committee has decided to put the ‘Fun’ back into this event by increasing the entry cap to 14 entries. This will allow for more participation and less disappointment.
    Registration for this event will be conducted on-line with our registrar RegattaCentral.com. On-line registration will close 23:59 July 26, 2019. All on-line entries will be accepted as per our Entry Policy. Once the entry cap has been exceeded, Waitlist Policy will come into effect. If the entry cap has not been met at time of closing of registration, Late Entry Policy will become into effect (excluding the open lane policy clause). Late entries can be submitted in the Regatta Office no later than 3:00pm Friday August 9th 2019. Only completed late entries accompanied with $125.00 Cash, plus HST and associated RCA and ROWONTARIO seat fees will be accepted. Participants are encouraged to register for this event on-line to guarantee entry and avoid any disappointment with the Late Entry Lottery.
    This years RegattaSport Dash for Cash will proceed with two separate, seven entry (max) races. Lane draw will be conducted on Friday August 9th 2019 and will be displayed and distributed in the Draws & Results section of this website at the posting of the Final Draw for Saturday’s racing.
The crew with the fastest time of the first RegattaSport Dash for Cash race will be notified by officials to pull into the Grandstand (stay in the boat) and wait for the results of the fastest time of the second RegattaSport Dash for Cash race. The fastest overall time will be awarded the winners of the RegattaSport Dash for Cash.
Participants of the RegattaSport Dash for cash will be responsible for their own scheduling for this event. The host committee will not accept any scheduling requests.
