[Basics of boat racing]
It is a competition in which 6 boats make 3 laps on the surface of the water, each lap of 600m, and compete for the order of finish.
Proceeds from the boat race will be used for social contribution activities through the Nippon Foundation and local governments.
●Point1 “Boat race is a game of 6 boats!”
The boat race is a race with 6 boats. Each has a number and a color.
There are only 6 boats, so it is easy to predict.
●Point2 “Boat race is 3 counterclockwise laps!”
After the race starts, the 1st and 2nd marks are followed by 3 laps around the course counterclockwise to determine the order.
(1 week 600m×3=1800m)
●Point 3 “Flying start unique to boat racing”
The boat race’s unique “flying start” is based on the time indicated by the “big clock”.
①Pit out[about 1 minute and 40 seconds before the start]It is to jump out of the “pit” of the waiting area.
(2) Standby action[approximately 30 seconds before the start]Move to the start position of the run-up, aiming for a course that the athlete thinks is advantageous.
Here’s the bargaining to get your favorite course and run-up distance!
③Approach ~ Start The time to start is 1 second after the big clock shows 0.
Start aiming for a moment as close to 0 as possible.
