Race kit – what’s in your kit bag

Exeter Rowing Club regularly competes in the WEARA Regatta Championships as well as competitions around the country including some of the best known events: Henley, Head of The River and the Boston Marathon to name but a few.

POINTS
Rowing and Sculling are classified separately and every competitor, whatever his or her age, weight, or gender, (except coxswains who are not generally classified), has a separate status in each of the two disciplines.
This status, based on points won, determines where the individual fits in senior racing.
The total of the points held by the crew as a whole (excluding the cox) determines their senior classification. The table below gives an approximate guide to the conversion of points for WEARA and British Rowing.

WEARA BR
Status # Wins Status Points
Novice 0 Novice 0
1-2 IM3 1
3 IM3 2
Senior C Any IM3 3
Senior B Any IM2 4
Senior A Any IM1 6
Any BR rower with 3 or less points may row at Senior C in WEARA events
Any BR rower with 6 or less points may row at Senior B in WEARA events
Any BR rower with 9 or more points must row at Senior A in WEARA events
