Head Up the Creek

  • Hosted By: False Creek Rowing Club

Rowing Canada Aviron's Rules of Racing will apply to this event, except that there will be no weigh-ins for coxswains or rowers.

Competitors not rounding major course buoys may be disqualified. Competitors not rounding minor course buoys will not receive penalties, but they will have chosen a really bad course and will pay for it in time it takes to finish the race.

Comportment is critical: we are trying to create a new home for rowing in False Creek. Swearing, cussing and inappropriate conduct will not be tolerated. Running into ferries and dragon boats will result in disqualification.

The determination of the overall winner will be based on a system outlined in the Rules of Racing and will compensate for ages of the competitor in an attempt to level the playing field for competitors of different ages and genders. It will not be directly calculatable from the handicapping method outlined in the Rules of Racing.

All competitors must be members of Rowing Canada Aviron or US Rowing.

All competitors are encouraged to wear their club uniform and paint their blades with their club colours. Failure to do so may jeopardize our ability to identify you and your placement during the event.
