On all boats water numbers must be applied to the bow of the boat. Each boat will be assigned a lane number. The boats reach the starting line along the shore side of the competition field.
They must be placed, in the order of the aligner, in their own lane based on the number of water assigned. The boat number 1 will leave next to the aligner, while the boat number 8 from the side towards the center of the lake.
The international umpire, who will act as an aligner, will align the boats with the bows on the starting line, pronouncing the words “forward” when the crew must row forward (towards the finish line) and “go back” when the crew must row back . Once the alignment is established, the aligner will pronounce the words “red flag” and the italian judge of the course (who is in front of the crews) will raise the red flag. Subsequently, the aligner will pronounce the words “Attention” and, after a clear pause, “GO”, while the judge of the course will lower the red flag. If the crews make a false start, the starter will stop the race and assign him a “first official warning”. At the second official recall the crew will be disqualified.During the journey the crews must remain in their own lanes. If a crew is about to damage another crew, the judge of the course will call him to return to his course. If a crew approaches another crew, the judge of the course will put the crew responsible for the boarding race out of the race.
The order of arrival will be drawn up by the Italian finishing judge, who will signal each passage of the boats on the finish line with an acoustic signal.We kindly ask the crews to be fast during the boat changes so as to keep the scheduled times on the race schedule.
