Zoom race will be postponed. Air quality is so poor beaches/boat ramps are closed.

Stay healthy.

Racers,

Here are the updated rules, thanks for all the feedback:

Sound Rowers Zoom race #1: 10am Saturday 12th September
This is an open water race, for any human-powered craft. Entry is free, to Sound Rowers members, and non-members.

Rules:

0. A Zoom link will appear in the Google signup sheet, before the race.
1. The race is for the period of exactly 1 hour, determined by how far you go. Alternatively, you can just cruise, and mark your entry without a distance.
2. Wear a mask whilst on land, before and after racing.
3. You can select your own race course, any open water, but the course must be a loop, or out-and-back. You must finish more or less where you start (within 1Km of your start location). Tidal water is OK.
4. Use your smartphone (ideally perhaps in a waterproof case) to log into the Zoom call, and the start will be a verbal "Go".
5. After exactly one hour, "Stop" will be called, and record your distance, ideally using GPS. If you lose the signal, just stop after an hour and record your distance.
6. Write up your distance, comments, race course, etc., in the Google sign up sheet.
7. Digital ribbons will be sent to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd in each class. Normal Sound Rowers classes apply.

Hope to see you there!

Did this just go to the board and race directors? I don’t see anything on Facebook or our web page. Or is the first one a trial run?

Re: Zoom race

carrie weisse
 

Since this is a timed race I would not necessarily be back to my start point.  Is it a requirement to be back exactly at my start?  For example I could row along the coast and turn around. The tides would determine actual speed. I may need to row against the tide for  35 min and then with the tide for maybe 25 min to be back at the start in exactly an hour.  

May be a good idea to require the race be run on non-tidal water, non-current water, such as a lake.

Lastly, could we do a trial race to determine if the zoom method works? I'd need to find somewhere with a good internet connection.  What happens if we lose the connection in the middle of the "race"?

Thanks. Great idea!

I am hoping to set the upcoming events as virtual races. We can create a Google doc where people can upload their results after they complete the course individually. I’ll try and get more details out in the next few days. Stay safe and stay fit!
