To our 161 NQ Zone Novice members (you have been a member of AOCRA for less than 12 months),
There are THREE races just for you!
· Novice Open Men OC1 and Novice Women OC1
· Novice OC2
o Teams can be all men, all women or one of each
· Novice OC6
o Teams can be all men, all women or Mixed (3 or each)
o A Non-Novice Steerer is allowed if necessary
· Novice races are important in maximising the overall points tally for your club
o OC6 crews earn (1st) 14 points, (2nd) 12 points, (3rd) 10 points down to 2 points for 10th place
o OC2 & OC1 paddlers earn (1st) 9 points, (2nd) 7 points, (3rd) 5 points down to 1 point for 6th place
o Talk to your club coaches about training up on the OC1’s and OC2’s – it’s a great opportunity to not only help your club out, but also a gentle introduction to racing on the smaller craft
Magnetic Island 38km Relay/Iron is an Aggregate Age Category Race.
- Categories are 360+, 300+, 240+ and 120+
· You all nominate as Open Crews, however
· When submitting your Team Nomination
o Provide the names of your Iron or Relay paddlers
o Include their Dates of Birth (in the notes section)
o Plus indicate which Category you will be racing in (360+, 300+, 240+, 120+)
o Any changes to crews, the Race Secretary needs to be notified immediately – in particular if it changes your category allocation.
For the benefit of smaller clubs there is an opportunity to paddle in Combined Crews if necessary (nominate as a separate event on the AOCRA website).
However, CLUB CREWS will be earning POINTS FOR THEIR CLUB and Combined Crews will be eligible for medals but will not accrue points.
