Course Safety Rules: This is a narrow buoyed course approximately three lanes wide, and the rules of head racing apply. Racing boats have the right of way over all other boats. Any boat failing to follow these or any rules will be subject to a time penalty of 30 seconds or disqualification.  There is a 10 second penalty for each missed buoy and the course will be monitored.

Boats being overtaken must yield the right-of-way (move to starboard shore) to passing crews.

*Traveling to the start area, boats must stay on the boathouse side of the buoys
