Competitors will have to present themselves to the pre-alignment Marshall and follow the instructions for the check and alignments. Crews who withdraw on the course must communicate it to a GA or auxiliary either directly or through the rescuers.
All rowers and team representatives must behave in accordance with the rules in force regarding the use and safety conditions of their boats, oars and other equipment. It is also the responsibility of the rowers, coaches, clubs or affiliated federations to ensure that all their equipment is suitable for the prevailing conditions of the lake during the race. They must abide by the instructions of the jury and the COL on all security issues. Coaches and team managers will be given traffic rules to enforce on the race course with their rowers.
It is the responsibility of every rower, coach and team manager to read, understand and comply with all traffic rules. In addition, during warm-up and cool down the rowers must: 1) Not cross the line of arrival (in any direction) while the boats taking part in another race are in process of crossing the finishing line, 2) Stop when other races are approaching their position 3) Not follow a race on all or part of the course, even outside the area with buoys if they are not participating in that race.
During the official training and race hours no boat (moving or stationary) will be allowed on the race course or in the training areas without the approval of the jury president. The President of the jury will decide the position and the movements of the authorized boats, eg. lance of course judges, rescue boats, boats for television shooting, service boats, etc. The COL is responsible for ensuring that no non-authorized rower or crew is allowed to go into the water at any time from the first day the race course is open to the end of the races without the specific approval of the jury president.
