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 bib.
