  • All rowers will row only once in a heats based format. Rowers will compete as a group. Participants will be seeded, based upon erg scores submitted on the entry form,so that each rower will compete against other rowers of comparable abilities. The best time will win the overall event.

  • Lightweight Divisions: There are Lightweight Divisions within the Junior, Master, Senior,and Veteran events. The lightweight division scores will be tabulated both inclusively and separately in each of these events. Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female lightweight finishers
