The Rules of Racing have been changed to specify that heel restraints must ensure that each shoe is independently restrained and that the restraints should not allow the heel to lift more than 7 cm. This brings Scotland into line with the position adopted by FISA some years ago and by British Rowing earlier this year. The new rule comes into effect on 1 January 2017.
At the same time, the Rules have been updated to replace 'Veteran' with 'Master'
A revised version of the Rules of Racing is available on this website.
The Water Safety Code is also being revised to make sure that the heel restraint requirements are consistent.
