RACE DAY INFORMATION

Check-in

Check in opens at 7 am. It is recommended that athletes check in two hours prior to the start of their race, to have time to get acquainted with the facility and to warm up. All athletes must sign a waiver in conjunction with their Regatta Central registration.

Warm Up

Warm-up ergs will be available for use by all competitors adjacent to the competition floor. Final warm-up strokes may be taken on the competition floor during the 5 minutes prior to race time.

Racing

Athletes should be on their competition erg 5 minutes prior to the start of their race. The competition floor is a restricted area. Each athlete is allowed to bring one person onto the competition floor during their race. Once a heat is over, athletes are asked to immediately clear the competition floor. This allows the regatta to stay running on time. Warm up ergs may be used for additional cool down.

Spectators

Admission to watch the event is free of charge. Spectators are not allowed on the competition floor.
