SUPs at Hasler Races
Following a recent request regarding SUPs in Hasler races, below is a note from the MRC Minutes of November 2018 –
Item 7 Domestic Racing – Point g. “It was agreed that these craft (including SUPs) should not be forced upon race organisers, but race organisers would be free to accept entries from such craft in appropriate circumstances, if they felt confident to do so within their risk assessment.” .
Inclusion of SUPs remains at the discretion of the organisers, but the MRC (subject to any concerns raised by the race organiser) would fully encourage SUPs to partake in the marathon events that they oversee.
As they are propelled by a single blade the paddler’s classification would be as for canoe, according to age and gender.
