Race day

  • We have a full slate of races.  Having your coxswains and rowers prepared will help in the races going off on time.  As such, please have them:
    • Prepared to back into a start platform from a reasonable distance.
    • Be able to scull the bow around in case of wind.  Also maintain that point during the starting commands.
    • Move on and off the docks within 2 minutes of stepping foot on them.  All boats launching and recovering should have blade carriers there to assist.
  • The coaches and coxswains meeting will start promptly at 6:30 a.m. at the control commission area (docks), with the first race launching at 6:55 a.m. 
  • Too speed up Saturday morning, you my weigh in your lightweights on Friday afternoon from 5-7 p.m.  I would encourage you to do so if possible.
  • Please remember that you are responsible for bow numbers.  The LOC will not provide bow numbers.
  • Event 17 Novice 4+ is being run as flights. Medals will be awarded for each flight. Trophy points will not be awarded for Event 17.
