Rules of Racing

As part of the annual season review, various program changes are made that require a revision of the Rules of Racing.

For the current version of the Rowing WA Rules of Racing (approved by the Rowing WA Board on 2 May 2022):

RWA Rules of Racing - 2022.05 Edition

A marked up version of the above rules is available here

This revised version includes the following changes:

  • Changing of Novice Grade to D Grade. This will allow rowers to fall back into D Grade from C Grade if their results reflect this need
  • Novice rowers defined as someone with no rowing ecperience (except for Learn to Row or Come and Try). The Rowing Score for Novice rowers will be locked at 4.0 for one season.
  • Update to pennant points for Head Races and State Championships
