Masters (Veteran) Handicap tables                  
           NEW (2017) version   **corrected 13/2/18 (see below)        
            Information from SR about use of handicap tables (published March 2018) 

In January 2017, Scottish Rowing agreed to a one-year trial of the above new handicap tables.  These were produced by Dan Davidson of Aberdeen Boat Club.  They significantly reduce the benefit given to older rowers compared with the previous tables.
(For information, here is a link to the old version as approved at Scottish Rowing AGM in Oct 2009)

**Apologies, somehow a version of the long-distance handicap table appeared on the CofD website with corrupted data.
this problem was noticed and corrected on 13/2/18
