World Cup 3 replica regatta – West Lakes Use (10-13 June)

Dear SA Rowing Clubs, Schools and supporters,

 

I would like to provide an update to you regarding the upcoming World Cup 3 replica regatta to be held at West Lakes 10-13 June 2021.

 

As the aim of this regatta is to best prepare the Australian Olympic crews in readiness for the Tokyo Olympic Games, we are reliant on Rowing Australia to provide the regatta schedule which will suit their preparations. At this point in time the following sessions have been scheduled as racing blocks:

  • Thursday 10 June, 9.30am-12pm
  • Friday 11 June, 9.30am-11am
  • Friday 11 June, 2.30pm-4pm
  • Saturday 12 June, 9.30am-12pm
  • Sunday 13 June, 8.30am-10am

 

These sessions have not been 100% confirmed and sessions may be adjusted due to the weather. We will update our Socials and communicate to you once sessions have been confirmed. Normal activity and access to the facility and Course will continue throughout the week, except for the duration of the racing period (including warm up/cool down). The attached map indicates the exclusive area for Rowing Australia during the racing days.

 

Based on indicative scheduling, here is a draft timeline of events during the Australian Team visit to Adelaide. Further communication will be provided to you once updates come to hand.

  • At this point in time the Course will be closed on racing days only, with training on the course on these days permitted up to 60 minutes prior to the first race and 60 minutes after the last race – TBC.
  • Normal activity and use of the facility and Course will continue throughout the week, except for the duration of racing.
  • During the racing blocks and when the course is closed, Rowing Australia request that all non-Rowing Australia staff and athletes are not on the Rowing SA grounds. This is to allow the athletes and coaches a private space to prepare. The attached map indicates the exclusive area for Rowing Australia during the racing days.
