Check Your Heel Restraints

Check Your Heel Restraints.

From the 1 April the Rules of Racing has been amended requiring each heel to be restrained to prevent it from rising higher than 7cm, as measured at right angles from the footplate. Furthermore, the heel restraint should be in working order and the foot release must be self-acting and not require the intervention of the athlete or a rescuer.

If you do turn up to a race and upon inspection your boat does not meet this new criteria, then you will not be able to boat until this has been fixed. If you cannot fix your boat to meet these requirements then you will not be able to race.

For the full version of the Rules of Racing 2016 and an overview of other rule changes for 2016 click here.
