OURCs Rules

Please note that the ARA is now British Rowing - all references to the ARA found within these rules should be read as British Rowing whilst we approve the necessary changes.

OURCs Rules & Constitutions

These appendices provide extra useful information which supplement the rules.

Under rule R9.1 the OURCs committee may grant permission for crews to have more than one crew out on a weekday morning. Details of who has permission for this are contained on this page.
