In close collaboration with The Rowing Service and Rachel Quarrell, Rowperfect is proud to support the 2009 Mystic Worlds Competition.

We introduce Mystic Worlds, the guessing game for the 2009 World Rowing Championships.

For those who haven't played Mystic before, all you have to do is choose which crew in each event you think will win the gold medal. The rules are simple: you must pick a winner in every event, and you can change your picks any number of times until midnight GMT on Wednesday 26th August 2009, which is the evening before the semi-finals begin. After this time, the competition is locked and we wait to see who has the biggest number of winners after all the finals are over.

For those who have played Mystic Henley in the past, this works essentially the same way, other than that crews count as successful if they are still in the running for the gold medal. You can re-use your Mystic Henley username if you wish, log in as usual.

Whoever picks the most 2009 world champions will be the winner, with ties to be decided by random draw. Anyone in the world is able to join in the competition.

Prizes for winners

For Mystic Worlds 2009, the winner's prize is a bundle of the following: a DVD of Paul Thompson's Rowing and Sculling , a copy of David and James Livingston's book Blood Over Water, and the DVD of the the FISA 2009 world championships, courtesy of sponsors Rowperfect and the Rowing Voice.

So if you want to play, register (if you haven't already done so), pick your crews, and sit back and watch how they do: before Wednesday 26th August you can make any number of changes, as we start to see which are fast and which slow.

Message your favourite crews

You can also use the message-board on the right of this page to add comments about your choices, or to send good luck to specific crews or teams.
