AT THE 2017 AGM on 18th MARCH, 2017 FURTHER CHANGES WERE AGREED. THESE CHANGES EFFECTED THE HAND AND DORSET ARA CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY RULES, THE HANTS AND DORSET RULES FOR BOAT RACING AND THE HANTS AND DORSET ARA STATUS RULES AND THESE SECTIONS HAVE NOW BEEN UPDATED AND CAN BE DOWNLOADED IN PDF FORMAT BELOW. THE COMPLETE RULES LESS THE CONSTITUTION HAS ALSO BEEN UPDATED.

Recommendations to Regatta Committees, Conditions Governing the Championship Trophies and Hants & Dorset ARA Championship Trophieshave been removed as these are now included within the revised rules structure

The Asoociations AGM accepted that following such a major revision some minor changes to the layout and wording would emerge as the rules were put to use and that therefore there should not be a full re-print at this point but that revised copies should be published of the web side – for down loading – and that Event Secretaries should have a copy printed off and available to Race Officials at each regatta.
