- Introduction of the Interim Schools Committee
- That Regulation 11.2 be altered from "... the eight centre lanes in any final..." to "... eight lanes in any final..." to give "Entries from overseas Crews will be accepted on the understanding that not less than eight lanes in any final shall be reserved exclusively for New Zealand crews whenever there are sufficient New Zealand entries."
This change is proposed by the Executive Committee. It arises from the 2010 Aon Maadi Cup Regatta where the existing Regulation 11.2 wording (which was new from the 2009 AGM) was implemented for the first time. From that regatta it was reported back to the Executive Committee the "centre lanes" requirement, by shifting overseas crews to the outside lane from the lane they would have normally drawn during finals, created a safety concern and also made it more difficult to umpire those A finals. The identified solution was to leave the lane draw as it falls and not shift overseas crews to the outside. The proposed change achieves this, while still ensuring no New Zealand crew is excluded from an A final due to the presence of an invitational overseas crew.
Because there is a safety element and Regulations are not due for changes until 2013, which would mean the issue would be unresolved until 2014 Championships, the Executive Committee deems the proposed change to be an emergency for the purposes of clause 10.6.
The remit requires 75% approval for the amendment to be made.
