All the 2016 schedules and results can be found on the Current Year page.
Following the September regatta the provisional MacGregor points were updated with disqualifications. This changed the provisional results and when the results were distributed to team leaders for consultation, not surprisingly, some team leaders lodged challenges. These challenges have now been considered and resolved and the official final results are now available.
The Official Results for the September 2016 National Sprint Regatta are now available, including promotions, demotions and penalty points.
The provisional results of the MacGregor Inter-club Competition are still under review with regatta officials and club team leaders. The official MacGregor results will be published as soon as the consultation process is complete.
