Rental Boats - WRCC 2022


Welcome to the Swift Racing online booking page for the 2022 WRCC.
If you are looking for more information about the regatta, please visit this link: https://www.worldrowingcoastals2022.org


We believe Swift Racing has the best range of coastal boats of any boat builder, which will help you to perform and have fun on the water.
Swift Racing coastal boats are designed and developed to excel in coastal conditions, meeting and surpassing all FISA requirements.

Please be sure to read the following before booking your boat.


Price:

Price is GBP250 per seat for the whole event.
The early bird price is GBP220, if you book before August 1st
2022
The price includes boat and life jacket, not oars.

Cancellation:

Cancellations are free of charge until September 1st 2022
We will not refund the rental fee after the above date if you cancel your booking or if World Rowing or the organizing committee cancel the regatta.

Top10 Refund:

We will refund the full rental fee to any crews renting Swift boats that finish in the Top10.

Training times:

Please check the regatta website for training day and times.
To book your training time please go to this page: www.swiftracing.com/2022wrcctraining (Link will be working from September 1st)

We will put you in touch with the other team that will be using the same boat, so you can coordinate.
We will try as much as possible to allocate the same boat for the whole week, training, and racing.


Rigging:

To make it easier for everyone, we need to set a fixed span and pitch on all boats. Changing span and pitch between races would be too complicated to manage.
Span will be 160cm and pitch will be zero degrees.
All our oars are set at zero degrees.
You will be able to set for each training and race:

  • Stretcher position
  • Stretcher height
  • Work height
  • Oar length
  • Oar inboard


    Tools:

    Please bring with you at least a set of 10mm and 13mm spanners, a tape measure, a Phillips screwdriver and a flat-blade screwdriver.


Deposit:

There will be a damage deposit for boats of GBP100 and for oars also GBP100.
Please bring GBP100 cash for each seat (excluding cox) and for each pair of oars.
This deposit will be given back to you at the end of the regatta unless damage occurred during training or racing.
When you first arrive at the venue, we will check the allocated boat together and mark any damage on our form.
If any damage does happen during training and racing, let us know as soon as you can so that we can fix any problem before the next crew goes on the water.


Boats handling:

Basic rowing boat handling applies! Treat your rental boat as if it was your own!
a. You can lie boats on fine sand but dig a deep enough hole for the fins of CO1x and CO2x.
b. Do not drag boats on the sand. Please lift them up if you need to move them. We will supply a lot of trolleys for 2022.
c. To determine the best stretcher position for you, you may sit in the boat 1 time only, during a training session. Please make sure the boat is placed on our yoga mat, near our tent.
d. Remove the CO4x+ rudder well before landing on the beach.


Before racing:

Before going to race, you need to check that all nuts are tight, as well as seat rails, close hatches firmly, and check that your boat is empty of water.

Boats:

C1x will have bow mounted wing riggers

C2x and C4x+ will have folding riggers.
All boats will be equipped with Active Tools shoes.
If you want to use your own shoes, make sure they are attached to your own shoe plate for quick and easy change over.

Oars:

Swift Racing coastal oars have the strength and toughness needed to cope with the full mix of extreme conditions that you will encounter – turbulent winds, rough water, severe swirls, oar clashes, collisions with other boats, to name just a few.


Swift Racing coastal/offshore boats and oars combine the strength, durability, and performance you’ll need to ensure that you have the edge, in all conditions.
You will be able to set length and inboard before each training and race.
Price is GBP50 per pair for the whole regatta
