COVID-19 Protocol 


Everyone attending must be wearing face covering.  We will have two separate entrances to the event area one for athletes and one for spectators.  In warm-up area, face covering can be removed once in warmup machines.  Face coverings must remain on while getting one stage of race event, face coverings can be removed once on race machines.  Only one additional person will be allowed on stage per participant, this person will have their face covering on until participants are call to attention.  Anyone breaking this rule will risk disqualification of participant.  Ergs and chairs of will be sanitized after each use.

Race Information

All races will be held on Concept2 Model D ergs. Concept2 provides the electronic timing system used for this regatta. Racers and spectators can watch their performance on a projected screen during all races.

Competitors may set their ergometer to the fan setting of their choice, but may not alter the setting after the race has started. Competitors may not put any substance on the erg handles.

The race organizers reserve the right to: 

  • Change the schedule of events.
  • Combine events that have fewer than 20 registered participants.
  • Limit the number of events or flights.
  • Suspend the use of the Concept2 electronic timing system and replace it with a manually timed system.
  • Adjust final race time and schedule based on total number of athletes entered.
  • Accelerate the schedule of events by up to 15 minutes.

Check In 

All competitors or coaches must check-in at the registration desk prior to their event. Competitors should plan to be at the venue at least 1½ hours before their scheduled race.


We will have two scales on site.  One scale will be set at 135 lbs for women lightweight, the other scale will be set at 155 lbs for men lightweight.  No actual weight will be recorded.


A novice is considered to be any person who has not yet completed one calendar year from the date of their first organized competition on an ergometer, or has not yet completed one calendar year from the date of their first organized competition in either sweep rowing or sculling.

Warmup and Race Preparation Information Begin warmup 30 minutes before your race; you will need to be on-deck 10 minutes before. A flight of ergs will be available for warmup. They will be separate from the racing ergs. Please come to the on-deck area properly warmed up and ready to race. Please limit your warmup to a maximum of 10 minutes to give everyone a chance to warm up. Rowers should not plan to use the racing ergs for warmup as time may not permit this (all times are recorded with pen and paper in case of software failure). Rowers may set the drag (fan setting) and the heel height of their assigned racing ergometer (fan setting may not be changed during the piece). On Deck (Mandatory Pre-Race Instructions) Competitors must allow sufficient time to warmup, and be in the on-deck area at least 10 minutes before their event. Failure to be in this area 10 minutes before the start of your race may: • result in competitors missing important last minute information • result in missing check-in and not being able to compete.
