  • Hotseating boats or rowers requires a minimum of 50 minutes separation, but is always done so at your own risk.  We can not wait for your crew! We strive to run an 'on-time' regatta. Please check the tentative schedule to ensure that you can make all necessary accommodations for the double use of boats, oars, and athletes.
  • Please provide bow numbers if you have them.  There are a limited number of extra bow numbers available.
  • Please practice with your coxswains and crews the techniques of using a starting platform, including the pointing of their bows – i.e., having two scull with bow's oar or three scull with two's. 
  • Coxswains (strokes of bow-coxed boats) must also know that they need to have their hands in the air while they are adjusting their point at the start.
