Host institutions can also offer their own categories such as sprints and team relays over other distances. 

 

 

DATA PROTECTION

 

In order for BUCS to send to an Event Organiser the list of eligible BUCS competitors we need an Agreement for Disclosure of Personal Information. Each Event Organiser is expected to read, sign and return this agreement confirming they will not disclose confidential or sensitive information received for these events.

 

  

LIGHTWEIGHTS

 

BUCS Rowing regulation ROW 2.2 states: Men 75.0kg or less, women 61.5kg or less.

Lightweight competitors must weigh-in at least one hour before their race. Weigh-in must open at least two hours before the competition starts.

Lightweight competitors who do not make their weight will still be able to race but they will not be placed. Their time will be listed at the bottom of the race category they entered. Lightweight competitors failing to make their weight will have their time included in the openweight category results.

 

MACHINES

 

All rowing machines (ergometers) should be Concept2 Model C upwards. Machines should be in good working order, clean and have been serviced to ensure they are fit for purpose. The host institution is responsible for the condition of the machines. These may be inspected by the Independent Adjudicator.

It is expected there will be additional machines available for competitors to warm up and cool down.

Machines should be positioned adjacent to each other, facing in the same direction and not less than 1.5 machine widths apart (approx. 0.9m).

The number of rowing machines available at each regional event are expected to be proportional to the number of entries received by the host institution. Institutions should aim to have at least 10 rowing machines so competitors have a positive racing experience and to facilitate strong competition.

If you require additional rowing machines please contact Dan Hetherington at British Rowing.

 

 

MACHINE SETTINGS

 

The drag factor should be set as below for all competitors:

 

Men’s openweight:

138

Women’s openweight

130

Men’s lightweight

135

Women’s lightweight

125

Advice on settings will be available from the appointed Independent Adjudicator

 

COMPETITORS

 

Competitors may compete at as many regional UIRS events as they wish during the course of the series. Their best recorded time will be used and submitted to British Rowing and subsequently BUCS for inclusion in the BUCS Rowing Indoor Championships if applicable.

In the BUCS overall team categories not all members of the team have to compete at the same regional event. However, all competitors in a team must be from the same institution.

 

MEDALS

 

BUCS will send medals to institutions whose eligible competitors finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the BUCS Rowing Indoor Championship categories. These will be sent following the completion of the UIRS. BUCS medals are awarded on a national basis only, and not per event.

Host institutions are able to award medals on a local basis at their own discretion for additional categories.
