· The timetable is very tight so please make sure that all paddlers and crews arrive at the start line in good time (at least 5 minutes) before their race is due to start. The starter will not wait if paddlers are not in the start area when called.

· All athletes should wear their club colours and all boats should have race numbers

· The K2 races are likely to be straight finals.

· Closing date for entries is Tuesday 23rd July – please make sure that your club entries arrive in good time.
