EVENT-SPECIFIC RULES

Lightweight Events

Lightweights must weigh-in on race day. All competitors entered in a lightweight division of any event must weigh in on race day during the one-hour window beginning two hours before their assigned race time and ending one hour before their race time. (EG: If you are scheduled to race at 12:00 p.m., you must weigh in between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.).

The weigh-in station will open at 7:00 am and close one hour prior to the last lightweight event.  Any competitor failing to weigh in or make weight may race in his/her originally seeded time slot, but the score will count in the OPENWEIGHT division of that event.

Weight limit for Rowers:

  • Men: 165 pounds or less
  • Women: 135 pounds or less
