New regulations for USRowing-registered regattas have been released including requiring local organizing committees (LOCs) to appoint a “chief health officer” and keeping regattas to singles-only.

Additionally, USRowing requires LOCs to produce a “risk mitigation plan” during the process of preparing for a regatta.

Other guidelines include:

  • No team boats should be allowed until social distancing guidelines are lifted.
  • Masks should be worn at the venue until athletes are in their respective singles.
  • Participation should be limited to local participants with limited overnight travel required.
  • Regattas should be limited to one day.
  • Limiting attendees.
  • Providing adequate space for trailers to allow for social distancing.
