HOT-SEATING

We would prefer coaches avoid hot-seating scenarios for both athletes and equipment.  If a program finds hot-seating necessary, this should be addressed immediately with Registration.  At that time the regatta director will address if the scenario is permissible and proper notice will be given to timing and launch/retrieval personal.  Please note not all hot-seat scenarios may be permissible and this is at the discretion of the regatta director.

 

PRE-LAUNCH REQUIRMENTS

All boats must be in safe and working order.  Bow numbers are required and therefore will be provided, however proper fixation is the responsibility of the coach.  Please return your bow numbers to registration upon completion of your event!  Shoe tie-downs and bow balls will be checked prior to launching.  In the interest of a safe and fair regatta, every competitor and coach is expected to fully understand and follow the USRowing Rules of Racing, and our local rules and procedures.
