At a meeting held between the race officials it was agreed that the following rules will be STRICTLY ADHERED TO in the coming season, no exceptions and NO ONE will have the authority to overturn them.

1.  REGISTRATION:  Registration opens 1 and a half hours before the start of any race and WILL close 30 minutes before the start of a race.  Should you be late you will NOT be allowed to race.

2.  KAYAK JACKETS (life jackets):  These are COMPULSORY and should you decide not to wear it during a race you will be disqualified.

3.  NUMBERS:  It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct numbers displayed on both sides of your boat and that they are correctly displayed.  If your number cannot be recorded you will not get a results/time for that race.

4.  WITHDRAWAL:  Should you for any reason be forced to withdraw from a race it is your responsibility to tell the officials urgently, and while the race is still in progress, that you are out and should you not do this you will be banned from racing in the next Presidents Trophy race..

5.  SCRUTINY:  The officials will not scrutinise any boats at the start of a race BUT will do spot checks at the end and if any of the following are not correct Numbers, Buoyancy and Kayak Jackets you will be disqualified from the race.

6.  PREPAYMENT:  Any paddler who claims to have prepaid and it is later found that he/she has not prepaid will be fined an additional race entry fee and will have to pay for that races entry and be banned from racing in the next Presidents Trophy race.

These rules will be on the website, go out in newsletters, be up at all clubs and will be on display at every race so no paddler will be able to use the excuse "I didn't  know"
