With the regatta season upon us, some people may be scratching their heads trying to understand the new ARA rules that were introduced at the beginning of April this year. What does Intermediate 3 really mean? What happened to Senior 1-4?
The table below should help clear up any confusion. Just remember whatever points status a rower had before April has now gone up one point with this new system. So if someone had 2 points in 2008 they now have 3 against their name for 2009. This is primarily because the NV (novice) status has now gone to zero pushing the points for everyone up by one point.
