I refer you to the Ryde Regatta Club invitation letter which stated –

“Due to the problem with the tide the regatta committee has once again had to limit the entries in pairs and sculls to one entry per Club. Second and subsequent crew entries will be considered on the day in these events, should Clubs scratch any crews or if the entry is small (see reverse or attached for procedure). Additionally because of the strong likelihood of a larger than usual entries – the following statement, made by the Regatta, was accepted by the Hants & Dorset ARA AGM of 9th March, 2013 – “Ryde R. C. statement – Ref. Ryde – You will be aware that the tidal conditions and sandbank at Ryde restrict the Regatta to around four and a half hours – about 22 events – and that we impose entry restrictions on small boat events as a result. In the past few years this has allowed us to accommodate heats in just one event. There is a possibility of a significantly higher than usual entry in some fours events which may require heats. This can probably only be accommodated by dropping some of the small boat events. Therefore, with the Associations approval, if Heats are required in some fours events we will drop some of the small boats events – starting, subject to entries received, with the Double sculls and the Men’s and Ladies pairs events. The policy will be to advertise all the usual events and refund the entries where any event is not staged due to the need to allow heats in the fours events”. Clubs will be advised – by E Mail – of any cancelled events within three days of the Regatta entries closing with written confirmation and refund of entry fees within a week – and a week before the regatta takes place. I hope this is acceptable to everyone.”
