Competition Organisers’ Documents
Here are a set of documents for your use, some require action, some are for your guidance.
Especially important to note is the 76% discount on competition fees when you submit your results online and on time!
Make sure your competition doesn’t lose out – if you have any problems with the system email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other reasons why it is vital to submit results on time and accurately are –
- The knock-on effect for other competition entries and results if crew members don’t have the correct points.
- The data from the online results is recorded for posterity in the British Rowing Almanack.
Six weeks before an affiliated competition British Rowing will send an email to your Competition Secretary with fee and insurance information. In the email there is also a link to this page and the information below.
To take part in an affiliated competition all British Rowing competitors must have a valid race licence. Competitors from Welsh clubs must also have a valid British Rowing licence and those representing Scottish clubs must be a registered member with Scottish Rowing. Coxswains are also required to be registered members.
Club crews affiliated to any Association outside Great Britain, recognised by British Rowing or FISA, do not have to be registered members. However, competitions should ensure that overseas entrants are covered for third party liability insurance.
Information about the British Rowing affiliated competitions in the Competition Calendar is updated annually and listed in the British Rowing Almanack.
Medical Return Forms
The Medical Advisory Panel collates all the medical return forms from competitions so that they can check for trends, learning points, etc. British Rowing intends to include this form as part of the online procedure but meanwhile please download and the complete the form after your competition and return to HQ for the attention of the Chairman of the Medical Advisory Panel.
Control Commission Report Sheets
If a boat fails inspection at your competition’s control commission the Report Sheets must be completed. The information goes to your Regional Rowing Safety Adviser and is intended to promote the culture of safey and improve boat maintenance. The completed sheets should be part of the Competition Safety Report submitted after your competition. Copies of the report sheets, printed on water-proof paper, are available on request from email@example.com.
Recording your results on BROE
The discount for use of online entries only applies if the results are finalised online within five days of the Competition, as required by the Rules of Racing. Below are some guidance notes which we hope will assist you in entering your results on line but please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance.
All competitions must respond promptly to any request from insurance companies for information following an incident. Insurance companies are within their rights not to pay a claim if they have asked for information and this has not been provided in an appropriate timescale. For advice regarding British Rowing Competition insurance please check www.british-rowing-insurance.com.

Is your Competition on Environment Agency (EA) waters?
Remember to remind visiting clubs that all boats taking part need a valid EA registration if your competition is on EA waters. Clubs can purchase annual registrations through British Rowing’s block booking scheme or buy temporary registrations from the EA directly.
For full details go to: https://www.britishrowing.org/club-support/managing-your-club/ea-boat-registration/.
If purchasing temporary registrations from the EA:
Alternatively, competitions on some EA waters may purchase visitor registrations en bloc from the EA for visiting crews attending their competition, for information on this please contact the EA on: email@example.com or 03708 506 506. If you opt to do this please ensure that this is publicised to crews attending your competition.
