(b) If one of the Associations cannot fulfil their full representation, even if the Association can only submit one crew in any one status, then the other two Associations may enter an additional crew in that status without charge.  The Association that cannot fulfil their representation must try to give the other two Associations as much notice as possible, being not later than the closing date of entries for the Championship of their failure to fulfil.

27. Any oarsperson who has raced for Championship points for one Association

during the season, shall not be permitted to represent another Association at the South Coast Rowing Championships unless he has transferred his membership from one Club to another in accordance with the Rules of the Associations.

Parking is never easy in Dartmouth with the main car park restricted to four hours and on-street parking limited to two hours. The Park & Ride is therefore recommended. This operates daily 8.00 a.m. to 7 p.m. and there is also public transport to the site out of hours. All day parking at the Park & Ride is just £5 including the bus trip to and from although Bus Passes are not accepted. The buses run every 20 minutes. There is also the alternative option of the 90 bus service. Dogs are permitted on the Park & Ride buses. Tickets are obtained from the pay and display machine - one to show the driver and one for the car.
Trailers and towing vehicles will be facilitated at Coronation Park. Alternative arrangements for officials' parking are being made.
The Dartmouth Town Council are hosting a Civic Reception at the Guildhall on the evening of Friday, 13th September, 2019, which will be by invite.

The 2020 (64th) South Coast Rowing Championships Regatta and & 15th Under 16 Regatta - the next to be hosted by the Hants & Dorset ARA.

The Hants & Dorset Amateur Rowing Association is aware that under the SCC Rules we are obliged to advise the Council at its January in 2019 AGM of our proposed venue and date for the 2020 Championship event – the next South Coast Championships scheduled to be hosted by the Association.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our immediate control we are not in a position to make a final recommendation – however we have identified three potential venues, which are included in this presentation  which are all under consideration and we seek the approval of the South Coast Council to allow us more time to make a final decision. A final decision will be taken within six months of the 2019 South Coast Council AGM. 

The Association has three options under consideration – with more details on each on the Power Point presentation - that can be dowloaded in pdf format here - which was presented at the 2019 South Coast council on Saturday, 26th January.

These are - Netley/Victoria Country Park, Southampton; Swanage; Dorney Lake.
