FISA rules for masters events?

Post by Alchase1 » Wed, 01 Jul 1998 04:00:00


Are there FISA rules that provide for combining more than one age category in a
masters event, eg the FISA world masters regatta?  If so, do they specify age
handicaps?  Where can I get the specifics, preferably online?  (Unless I'm
missing something, the FISA website itself, www.fisa.org, doesn't cover this.)
[If you post a response, please email a copy directly to me.]  

Thx for any info.  -- Al Chase

You can combine any combination of Masters rowers into a crew as long as
the average age meets the minimum specified for the race concerned.
Many clubs combine to put up crews  to race in FISA Masters events.  You
can usually tell these by the fact that there is a spread of ages within
the crew.  If you see a Masters crew in category, say D, E, F, G, or
even H where everybody is about the same age you can be fairly sure that
this is a former National or Olympic crew that has stayed together and
is likely to give you a very hard race.  You do not get handicap races
in FISA masters championships unless entries are so low that they
combine two adjacent categories using a handicap-not very usual in mens
races but sometimes found in older womens races since women masters are
a later development than men and are still working their way up the age
groupings.
This years FISA Masters championship regatta will be in Munich.  Entries
close 31st July. They are at Olympia-Regattastrecke
