The Competition Organisers reserve the right to allocate alternative competition sectors having regard to safety and other considerations as circumstances dictate at the time. This will be communicated at the Competitor Briefing or by email beforehand if appropriate and feasible.

Boat Safety

Boats can be launched on the lake venues during the closed period but they must immediately be taken to their mooring point and should not travel more than 200m from their launching point if at all possible. PFDs (life jackets) must be worn in all boat sessions. PFDs are to be in current service date as required by Maritime regulations. Competitors are to provide their own PFDs and should not rely on boat owners to provide them. EMERGENCY PROCEDURES If a boat requires assistance oars must be held vertically. Other boats are requested to render assistance. In the event of an emergency on the lake mobile phones and radios can be used to obtain assistance but are strictly prohibited for any other purpose. As boats depart during the allocated steaming time prior to each session, NO PLANING is allowed in the first five minutes of departure.
