Weighing of Coxswains
For reasons of welfare and in line with the recent amendments to FISA rules, all coxswains competing at the 2017 Regatta shall carry a minimum weight of 55kg. (8st. 9lb.). To make up this minimum weight, a coxswain shall be required to carry deadweight throughout the race, which shall be placed in the boat as close as possible to the coxswain.
In anticipation of a large number of high-quality entries for the 2017 Regatta, it has been decided to continue to race at five-minute race intervals until the Tea interval on Friday 30th June.
