Rules of Racing

Racing will be held under FISA Rules of Racing and all relevant amendments.

A rower may compete as a Master from the beginning of the year during which he or she attains the age of 27.

A rower shall be placed in the age category corresponding to the age as of 31st December 2017. A crew’s age is determined by rounding down to the highest contained integer of the aggregate mean age of its rowers. (For example, the age of a crew whose rowers have a mean age of 54.9 is 54 and thus is a D category boat).

B      Average age 36 years or more
C      Average age 43 years or more
D      Average age 50 years or more
E      Average age 55 years or more

G     Average age 65 years or more
H     Average age 70 years or more
