A couple of questions:
The Dad Vail "Regatta Instruction Bulletin", under the heading
LIGHTWEIGHT RACES & WEIGH-IN FOR ALL LIGHTWEIGHTS & ALL COXSWAINS,
states that there is a 155 avg and 160 max for men but only that
there is a 130 max for women. However, in the memo to all coaches
entitled: 1994 REGATTA WEIGH-IN PROCEDURE-LIGHTWEIGHTS AND COXSWAINS
it's stated that there is a 125 avg for women. Does anyone know
off hand which way it is?
Also, I've heard through the rumor mill that there is an allowance
of 5 lbs for oarsmen. Is this like it sounds--too good to be
Any insight is appreciated.
