Local Rules

1. All racing will be run in accordance with SARA Rules of Racing. All competitors must be in possession of a valid Racing Licence when their entry is made. Anyone contravening the Rules will be disqualified.

2. Veteran races will be handicapped - handicaps will be applied at the start.

3. "Mixed" crews are assumed to be an equal mix of Male & Female rowers. Exceptions may be allowed by IRC race control on the day if the composition is deemed to be fair, and if this is the only way to enable racing to take place.

4. Racing will be over a 500m course (approx)

5. All crews MUST be in the start area 5 minutes before the start time of their race.

6. Crews must be in the marshalling area beyond the start 5 mimnutes before start time. A False Start will be awarded to crews arriving at the start late.

7. Crews should proceed upstream on the CITY side of the canal (left hand bank looking upstream). Please note this is the opposite to the usual circulation pattern of the canal.

8. All coxes MUST wear lifejackets.

9. All Crews MUST obey Marshalls at all times. Failure to do so may result in Disqualification.

10. After the finish ALL boats must paddle clear of the finish line and stay on the water until they are called into a landing area by a Jetty Marshall.

11. IRC reserve the right to amalgamate events to facilitate racing.

12. Please note that the while Organising Committee will do their best to accommodate a maximum of THREE entries made by Competitors, we cannot guarantee a rest period between racing, particularly for those with 3 entries or more.

Refreshments will be available all day.
We hope you enjoy the day and the excellent rowing which the Caledonian Canal has to offer.
