The Christmas Regatta is a two and a half day regatta with the first day's racing starting at around 10:30am on the Friday. The Friday program consists of heats for age group races only, with Saturday races being heats for Club athletes and the remaining age group races on the program. Sunday racing consists of finals for all events.
The Friday race program consists only of age group events that are aimed at school based rowing programs as most students have finished school for the year by this time. The event numbers are not consecutive, so coaches must be aware of situations such as where it would appear that event 11 and 15 would normally have three events between them, on this day they are adjacent events - on finals day, this would be the case.
The Saturday race program consists of a mixture of age group races and races aimed at club based rowing programs. Coaches should study the list of events for Saturday carefully as they are run out of order for the first half of the day. This is done to ensure that time is inserted between club events in the interests of fairness to athletes.
The Sunday race program consists of Finals for all events raced over the previous two days. The finals will be raced in event number order.
Because of the size of the regatta, it has been neccessary to put a number of limits on entries to assist in the control of the current size and future growth of the regatta.
There is an entry limit per athlete of three event entries. This may be extended once the supplementary entries open.

Whilst Karapiro Rowing realise that the simple solution for a lot of schools would be to enter as Schools where they have entered as Clubs in the past, should this happen and increase the number of entries, then the entry limits will be reduced to one entry per Club / School.
