Notes (From Rules, B2.2)
Competitors ranked in any previous season, but
who did not compete last year, must apply to the Ranking Status Officer for
ranking status before participating (but see note in bold at foot of page).
On applying for ranking, a paddler may state the
division preferred, but the Ranking Status Officer has the final say. Where a
paddler has been ranked in the same class before, he/she will normally be
reinstated into the same division in which he/she was last ranked. For example,
a paddler who was last ranked in Premier Division will normally be reinstated in
Premier Division, and so on.
Any competitor wishing to compete in C1 and
currently ranked higher than Division 2 in any other category, must compete in
Division 3, unless it is considered more appropriate for them to compete in a
higher division, in which case application must be made to the Ranking Status
Officer (but see note in bold at foot of page).
Except as separately provided below for new C2
crews and for C1, any competitor currently ranked in Division 2 or above in any
category must apply for ranking status before competing in a different category
(but see note in bold at foot of page).
Competitors of proven ability may apply for
Ranking Status giving full supporting evidence why they should not have to begin
in Division 4. Suitably experienced canoeists not currently in the ranking
system may enter an open competition at Division 2 events and may use their
result as evidence to support a ranking status application.
Membership of Canoe England, the SCA, Canoe
Wales or CANI is required.
Ranking Status must be taken up in the season in
which it is granted.
New C2 pairings
Except as provided below, new C2 pairings
containing a competitor currently or previously ranked in any category in
Division 2 or above, must compete in Division 2/3 and register as such with the
Bib Officer and comply with current Bib regulations.
Any new C2 pairings containing a competitor who
has never been ranked higher than Division 4 must compete as a Division 4 crew.
Any new C2 pairing who consider that it is more
appropriate for them to compete in a higher division than as provided above must
apply for Ranking Status with evidence to support their application.
Applying for ranking status takes time. If
the event organiser allows you may presume ranking, compete, and apply for
ranking and bib - promptly - afterwards, but you will not be credited with
ranking points until you have successfully applied for ranking and obtained a
