Notes to Competitors

  1. The race will be run in accordance with the assessment rules in the Canoe Racing Handbook.
  2. Club racing vests must be worn (or white if racing as independent).
  3. No wash hanging outside of the boats on your start line 
  4. This assessment event will be used as part of the selection for the European Championships and the Sanabria K4. You must race in the class that you are seeking selection for.
  5. This assessment event may also be used for the selection of the World Championships.
  6. Team leaders should decide if paddlers under 16 years of age in higher divisions should wear a buoyancy aid.
  7. The race organiser has the final say on who has to wear a buoyancy aid.
  8. Team Leaders are responsible for ensuring that paddlers are properly equipped having taken into account the paddler’s health, fitness, capability, the course, the prevailing conditions and other risks associated with this race.
  9. Vertical number plates will be provided, £5:00 charge for lost numbers.
  10. It is likely that paddlers will encounter other craft on the river. Rules of the river must be observed when racing – keep right.
  11. All pre-entries must be received by 22:00 noon Wednesday 15th. After this date, a late entry fee will be levied.
  12. British Canoeing numbers must be with entry.
  13. Competitors must render their boats sufficiently buoyant to remain afloat and to support the crew in rough water in the event of capsize. No boat will be deemed to be sufficiently buoyant purely as a result of its construction (e.g. vac bagged/ sandwich or other construction) to fulfil this requirement, additional buoyancy will be required in the form of foam, airbags and/or sealed bulkheads.
  14. During the course of the competition any items discarded by a competitor anywhere other than in a proper bin, must be recovered by the athlete, their support crew or coach immediately. It is the athlete’s responsibility to ensure that this has happened. An event official witnessing non-compliance with this rule shall report the infringement to the race organiser and the offending competitor will be disqualified from the competition.
