Hoover Invitational

  • Hosted By: Westerville Rowing Club
  • 2016 Registered Regatta

  Rules and Definitions:


  • Novice: Began rowing after April 19, 2007.
  • Lightweight: Men 155 lbs.; Women 130 lbs.
  • Varsity: Any rower not eligible as a novice.
  • Second Varsity: Crews are only eligible if a first varsity boat is entered in the same type of event (we will make exceptions for new programs- please check with regatta director before entering).


  • Hot seating boats or rowers requires a minimum of 50 minutes separation, but is always done so at your own risk.  We can not wait for your crew! We strive to run an 'on-time' regatta. Please check the tentative schedule to ensure that you can make all necessary accommodations for the double use of boats, oars, and athletes.
  • Please provide bow numbers if you have them.  There are a limited number of extra bow numbers available.
  • Please practice with your coxswains and crews the techniques of using a starting platform, including the pointing of their bows – i.e., having two scull with bow's oar or three scull with two's. 
  • Coxswains (strokes of bow-coxed boats) must also know that they need to have their hands in the air while they are adjusting their point at the start.

 Rules of Race Course:

  • As soon as a crew is clear of the dock, proceed north toward bridge.
  • Watch for marshals to send boats toward the starting line.
  • All crews should come to a stop 100-150 m after finish and immediately head west to begin cool-down towards docks.
  • Please use caution near the dam
