  1. All rowers & coxes must bring with them to the venue a life-jacket or buoyancy aid in case on the day of the event the Race Officer makes the wearing of these mandatory for all crew.
  2. It will be mandatory for all boats to carry a vhf: if you need to borrow a vhf, please inform the Race Secretary in advance. It is desirable to carry also a mobile phone in a waterproof pouch because the Island can block a vhf signal.
