A special general meeting of the association was held in September 1992 to adopt the principles for the operation of the regatta from 1994 onwards. It defined the respective roles of the association and the host schools as follows:

(ii) manage the merchandising side of the Regatta, in conjunction with the Host School. That for the 1994 Regatta 50% of nett profit on merchandising be returned to the Host School, with this percentage being reviewed subsequently.
(iii) prepare a pro forma document by which schools can register their interest in taking on the role of Host School.
(iv) conduct a ballot to pre-set the Host School role for 3 years ahead: the first such ballot to be in May 1993 for the 1995-1997 Regattas, with a 3-year cycle continuing thereafter.
(v) monitor progress and assist the Host School annually in preparation for the Regatta.
(vi) ensure that funds generated by the Regatta are used in the broadest and best interests of schoolgirl rowing, and ensure that funds raised by the Host School be used for the development of rowing in the Host School.
