GENERAL RULES

Rules

By registering for an event, all competitors agree to abide by the Race Organizers and Timing Staff decisions as final.

  • Rowers must compete under their own names. Use of pseudonym or other false identification will lead to disqualification.
  • Entrants are not permitted to compete in place of friends or teammates. There are no entry substitutions for liability reasons.
  • All rowers are responsible to check official race time for their event, as of race day. Every effort will be made to make the final race schedule available by Saturday of race weekend.
  • All competitors must wear a shirt to cover their torso and shorts while on the event floor. Uni-suits, bodysuits, all-in-ones are also allowed.
  • Rowers may set the drag factor BEFORE their races begin, but may not adjust the setting during the race itself. Doing so will lead to disqualification. 
  • The use of performance enhancing drugs is not permitted.
  • All competitors will row on Concept2 Model D Ergometers with PM 4 monitors.
  • The Format for CybERG is “finals only.” The best overall time will win each event.

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. Minors checking in without a parent or guardian present will need to bring a signed copy of the waiver with them.

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. For fixed-seat races, please bring your own equipment to set up a machine for warm-up and racing (contact Pasha Spencer with any questions on timing 503-896-3721).

Racing

Athletes should be on their competition erg 5 minutes prior to the start of their race. The competition floor is a restricted area. Competitors will be called to the floor once the prior race has finished. Each athlete is allowed to bring one person onto the competition floor during their race. Once a race 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. 

Ergometer Sales

The Concept2 Model D ergometers used at CybERG are available for purchase at the conclusion of the event at a discounted price. We have 2 for sale this year, please contact Pasha Spencer for more information (503-896-3721).
