On the Raceroei Regatta at all races boats will be weighed. Below you can find answers to some frequently asked questions:
How much should my boat weigh?
The weights for boats are found in article 19 of the ‘reglement voor roeiwedstrijden’ (page 13; Dutch).
When will it be weighed?
After each race a few boats are weighed by sampling. So it can occur you are being selected for both your heat and your final.
Where is it weighed?
The weighing takes place in the rear aisle (from the course counted) of the boat shed. Both the test weighing and the sampling take place at this location.
How is it weighed?
If your boat is selected for the weighing of boats, this will be told by the Control Committee as soon as you take your boat out of the water. They will accompany you to the scales.
What if my boat turns out to be light?
If your boat is found to be light for the first time, you will get the last place in the result of your race. Will your boat be too light again later during the race? You will be excluded from participating in the relevant number.
Can I perform a test weighing?
Yes, of course it can. Prior to the first races and 20 minutes after the end of the last races, a test weighing is possible. During the official weighing moments it is also possible to perform a test, but official weighings take precedence. Keep in mind that there can be a queue. See below for an example schedule.
