- Remit 1: that the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Association Inc. ceases classifying rowers by weight with the change to take effect immediately and that this be achieved by removing Rule 8.1.F and re-lettering sub clauses 8.1.G and 8.1.H; by removing Rule 11.1.D and Rule 11.5; and removing "Boys and Girls Under 18 Lightweight four oars with coxswain and Double Sculls" from the boat types listed under Regulation 6.3.
called: OSSRA & WSSRA, outcome: NOT CARRIED (67 for/35 against/2 abstentions - 65.7% is less than the required 75% majority of votes cast)
- Remit 2: that if the Association does not cease classifying rowers by weight, that weight-restricted events be restricted to athletes over the age of 15 (i.e. only u17 and u18 athletes may compete in these events) and that this may be effected by adding to the NZSSRA Rules 11.5.C: Age Restriction - no rower who is under the age of 16 before the 1st of January in the Season in which the competition is held shall be eligible to be classified by weight; and Regulation 6.3 amended to "Boys and Girls Over 15 Lightweight".
