The National Competition Committee have updated the Rules of Racing and outline the changes below

The 2020 Rules of Racing never got much chance to be used so there are no major changes this year. We have tidied up inconsistencies about the use of may, shall and must and also about the start procedure at head races.

The one substantial change concerns control commission with two new rules splitting out what crews should check before approaching control commission (and which control commission may check), new rule 7-2-8 Equipment Check from the aspects of boat design which align with RowSafe, new rule 7-2-9 Boat Design.

Changes to the 2021 Rules of Racing take effect from 1 April, 2021.
