New! Masters Challenges: we are offering some unique challenges for our masters crews. Please click here for details.

Masters Challenges

Both at HOTS in the past, and at other local events there are often plenty of Masters crews - but not necessarily enough to create events fo 3+ crews. Rather than race everyone as Time Only and award no prizes, we have devised a competition with a twist..!

Crews within the challenges (one will be run in each of Division 1 and Division 3, and prizes for each division) will be measured, rather than by who is fastest, but by who is best!


  • First we will handicap your crew time.
  • Then we will calculate your time as a percentage of the Olympic Gold Medal Times (%GMT).
  • Highest %GMT wins!

This system will allow all boat classes and genders to race fairly. For example, a women's coxed four that is slower than a men's eight could beat them, if they are nearer to their Gold Medal Time.

Happy hunting!
