In principle, National Championships are club based events. As a result, W6 crews shall be made up of competitors from one club. However, W12 crews can be made up of competitors from up to two clubs from the same region in any of the following divisions: • Taitamariki • Intermediate • Senior Master • Golden Master • Master 70 This rule only applies where a club does not have sufficient paddlers to form their own, stand-alone, W12 crews in those age categories. A W12 crew made up of 2 clubs may be a combination of any number of paddlers from those two clubs. They must satisfy all other rules as specified in the race rules. These crews must be entered online by the region.
