Regatta Safety

Rowing ACT has additional safety regulations in place for regattas to help minimise the risk of incidents occurring. Crews should always listen to the instructions of marshal’s and officials.

Regatta Traffic Flows

Regatta Safety Pointers

  • Reverse Traffic Flow on the course (see map above) will always be in place from 12:0am the day of a regatta until the final race. This is inclusive of two-day regattas.
  • There are designated warm-up loops and areas on the course, highlighted on the maps. Crews seen competing race pieces or warm-ups outside of these areas will be awarded a yellow card
  • Crews should transit to Weston Park and the start zones in the designated transit lanes. This includes travelling around the cross-over marshal point at the finish line
  • There is no stopping in the transit lanes. Crews should be at paddle speed during transit
  • Crews must cross the course safely and travel down lane 0 to return to clubs from Weston Park
  • Tinnies may accompany crews to Weston Park at absolute idle speed. This is at the discretion of the Chief Umpire and/or President of Jury and may be revoked should clubs or schools continually ignore directions regarding tinny speeds.
