Race Day Procedures...

Race Format:   All races will be held on 32 connected lanes on new Concept 2 Model D Ergometers.  Results will be displayed on enhanced performance monitors and connected to TV screens placed in between ergs facing competitors. For more info on race day procedures click here.  

Crew Racing:   In Crew events, competitors will sit side by side, and each stroke is averaged toward one boat.  A 2:00 split and a 1:30 split results in a 1:45 split. This year's schedule includes the Parent - Offspring Double (500m), and eights race for University Men and Women's crews (1000m) and a Recreation Club Men and Women's Four (500m). There will be no mixed (men and women) crews in the fours or eights. All competitors in a crew will race the full distance listed.  It is not a relay format - that would be crazy!
