17th EDBF European Club Crew Championships - Mixed Crews Rules Clarification

23 May 2017 We are being asked to clarify the Mixed Crews rules a lot at present, so here follow the rules. IDBF Competition Regulations 2016 (Edition 7, Issue 1 effective from 1st January 2016), which will be used in the forthcoming ECCC in France, state the following:

CR 2.1.3 Mixed Class - crews must contain a minimum of eight (8) and a maximum of ten (10) of each gender. There are no restrictions on age, except for the 12 years old rule shown in Reg 2.1.1. For Small Boat Races this shall be 4 to 6 of either gender. (Aug16)

What this means is that for a mixed team in the standard boat competition you must have 10 women and 10 men, if you run with a full crew of 20 paddlers. If you run with 18 paddlers you can use either 8 women and 10 men, 10 women and 8 men or 9 women and 9 men.
