Rules  

Note: BR Revised competition structure. Issue of translation from BR new Ranking Index System  (PRIs) s to H&D Status and vice versa

This has been discussed at several H&DARA  Rules and Competitions Sub Committee Meetings and at the Associations AGM on the 24th March, 2018 - where the following was agreed -   

For translation from H&D status to PRIs it was agreed to allow H&D rowers to accumulate PRIs in the same way as any other person, by racing in river events and accumulating PRIs, which are separate for rowing, sculling and coxing.

For translation between PRIs and HD Status it is very difficult to cross translate because we are comparing a system based on side by side racing with one which takes account of all results, including head races. So f

or 2018 the following is proposed - 

If rowers with previous river experience wish to row in H&D events they should be members of an H&D Club and registered with the H&D to race.  Club secretaries will be expected to declare the number of BROE side by side finals won by the river rower, plus any BR points and PRIs and agree with the H&D Secretary & his fellow Executive Officers if necessary a suitable status for the individual concerned, sculling and/or rowing.  The intention being to ensure fair competition all round. 

The H&DARA Executive are relying on the Clubs to make an honest appraisal of an oarsman/oarswomen's status.

The Asoociations AGM accepted that following such a major revision some minor changes to the layout and wording would emerge as the rules were put to use and that therefore there should not be a full re-print at this point but that revised copies should be published of the web side – for down loading – and that Event Secretaries should have a copy printed off and available to Race Officials at each regatta.
