The event starts at Cattle Duffer’s Flat in the Georges River National Park, Revesby and all crews will race to the St George Sailing Club, Taren Point – a distance of approx. 12kms.
The crew will consist of five (5) members from the entering club, who are eligible to compete under SLSA rules. No substitutions are permitted during the race, but any five (5) of the crew may sweep or row. Rolling seats are permissible for the event and there is no limit to the number of crews per club. Crews “nudging” the sweep oar ofthe boat in front of them, will be warned once, then will be penalised if this action continues.
Support craft will be supplied by SLS Sydney. All individual club support craft must keep within the channel markers and keep well away from competing boats. Crews do not have to follow channel markers – but must not enter oyster leases.
