Row for the Cure - Seattle

  • Hosted By: Pocock Rowing Center
  • 2017 Registered Regatta

USRowing:  This is a USRowing registered regatta with USRowing officials. The current USRowing Rules of Boat Racing will apply unless otherwise stated.

Doubling up & Hot-seating: Shells (8+, 4+, 4x) and coxswains may double up across the first flight and second flight.  If you are hot-seating a shell or coxswain please let your dockmaster know when you launch for the first race. While it is not forbidden for athletes to double-up, it is virtually impossible for you to do so given the event order.  And no, we will not rearrange the event list.  

Drones: Based on the City of Seattle's policy, drones are not allowed over the race course. (Drone Map Zone.)

Handicaps: RFTC uses handicaps patterned after the same system used by the Head of the Charles. Like the Head of the Charles, RFTC's handicaps are based on handicaps for Long Distance Events as published by British Rowing. The system uses Standard Times for the various events and establishes handicaps for each. The Standard Times were determined by an analysis of results from the 2014 RFTC. RFTC's handicaps are shown in the table below.
