Mixed Racing Rules 2017

As you may be aware, the IDBF recently changed the crew makeup of a mixed 20 person boat to be a maximum of 10 of either gender.


Following representations from some crews and some research we have done ourselves, plus having discussed it at the recent Exec meeting, we have decided to leave the mixed crew definition for 2017 the same as in previous years, so a minimum of 8 ladies in a full 20 person boat.


Only having 7 ladies would necessitate the removal of a man from the boat resulting in 18 paddlers in total, 6 ladies = 2 men out so 16 paddlers in total etc.
