 * one practice session is mandatory, three are the allowed maximum
 * the race distance is between 250m and 300m per run (upstream)
 * you will get wet (and just in case you should be able to swim...)

== The Classes ==

 * there are ''Fun Teams'' and ''Professional Teams'', we are going for FUN
 * Fun Teams are divided in ''Fun Open'' (18 crew members, any combination of male and female paddlers) and ''Fun Mix'' (18 crew members, including at least 6 female paddlers)

-> the person operating the drum can be of any gender and does not count towards the "Fun Open/Mixed" team limit!

== The Audience ==
A good race comes with BBQ & Trophies, and it needs cheer, support, encouragement & applause. For all this holds: the more the merrier. Anyone who decides not to join the crew, might still want to join the club ;-)
