There must be at least 5 entries for a National Championship race to take place.

Where a race is inquorate, the paddler may transfer to another class for which they are eligible [see rule 43a in the Racing Handbook].  If the paddler does not wish to race, they are entitled to an entry fee refund if the organiser is notified within 1 hour of the planned class start time.

Seeded Starts – The organisers reserve the right to seed starts where the number of entries to a class is larger than will comfortably fit on a single line.  Where this is deemed necessary, boats will be seeded based on Hasler Division. Unranked international paddlers should contact the organisers if they wish to be considered for a seeded start (if applicable for their race).

The number of boats seeded will be determined based on the number and ability of the entries. Seeding will be done based on boats entering before the entry deadline (7 days prior to the race). Late entered boats will NOT be considered for seeding regardless of ranking.

A list of classes where seedings are to be applied will be made available at the earliest possible point after entries have closed.  Instructions for how these starts will work will
