General Rules- United States Rowing Association Rules of Racing shall apply, unless otherwise noted.
Bow Numbers- Bow and coxswain shirt numbers will be provided at registration to crews who have properly submitted their entry materials (entry forms, signed waivers and fees). Crews without both bow and coxswain shirt numbers will not be permitted to launch. Bow numbers must be returned to the dock area after racing. Shirt numbers are to be worn on the back of the bow person of the boat. In a bow coxed boat, the coxswain number must be worn on the back of the bow rower.
Race Times and Boat Order- It is the Regatta's intention to start crews for each event together and in-order. One of the biggest complaints from previous years has been the relaxed starting policy. Therefore, the Regatta will NO LONGER allow crews that arrive late to the line to race. All crews should allow a minimum of 40 minutes to launch and row to the start line, in order to make their scheduled event. Teams should allow enough time to adjust for weather conditions.
Crews wishing to hot seat either boats or rowers shall notify the dockmaster at the time of launch and at the time of recovery. The dockmaster will help facilitate hotseating to the greatest degree possible.
