OVERVIEW: THE RACE
When the final sailor on one team hits the shore with their kayak, we have a winner!
IMPORTANT: THE RULES
1. Getting in the kayaks
The first participant may get in the kayak before the heat starts, but must remain at shore, with the kayak physically touching shore, until the Speakers have made the countdown. You may get help from your teammates when getting into the kayak. Fellow participants can help hold the kayak still, but CAN NOT GET IN THE WATER OR PUSH THE KAYAK FROM THE SHORE.
The participant sails out from shore towards the flag at the side. The kayak MUST sail around the flag, and then head onto the platform on the opposite side from the starting point.
3. Getting onto the platform
The participant must get up on the platform with minimum help from the CampusCup crew in the water.
4. Drinking and spinning
After entering the platform, the participant runs towards the middle where a judge will pass a bottle of beer to the participant.
The participant must empty the bottle completely. It is NOT ALLOWED to shake the bottle in order to create more foam! The judge will decide when the beer is empty!
The participant hands the empty beer to the judge. Please – DO NOT THROW THE BOTTLES! You risk hitting one of the nice judges or fellow contestants.
After handing over the empty bottle, the participant must spin 10 times. The judge will help count down loud and clear, and tell when the participant is allowed to run back to the kayak. If the participant does not empty the beer or spin around the full 10 times, the judge can give out extra spins as punishment.
5. Sailing back
The participant runs back into the kayak. (CampusCup water crew will help hold the boat steady)
REMEMBER – The participant must row back around the flag and back to their teams.
6. Changing participant
The former participant that have just made it to the shore, can help the next participant to get into the kayak and hold the kayak still. But needs to LET GO when the participant is in the kayak and MAY NOT push them. It is ONLY the former participant that can help this way.
7. Winning team!
The winning team is the team, who’s the fourth member hits the shore (the area marked with the red carpet) with the kayak first!
8.Completion of heat
The heat is not done before both teams have finished.
