Umpires are also strongly encouraged to read the bank rider briefing slides.


Bank Riding

All bank riders for Torpids must have been briefed in the last 18 months on their role, legal responsibilities, and what to do in an incident.

The easiest way to receive the briefing is would have been via the in-person meeting on Sunday 25th – see details below. If this is not possible, there will be smaller briefings at Race Desk, with more details to come closer to the date. We encourage all prospective bankriders to attend the online briefing to avoid any delays in following crews. 

Briefed bank riders should come to Race Desk to sign out a bib before following their crew and then return the bib to Race Desk when finished.

The briefing is based on this presentation.

The timing for this bank riding briefing is

  • Sunday 25th Feb., 11:00, Linacre College (please bring photo ID and make sure to arrive well before the meeting starts as you will need to fill out some paperwork).

 

 


Fingers crossed for next year – and here's to seeing you at Summer Eights 2024!
