Dusi changes key boat weight rule

The Star Early Edition - - CRICKET -

DUSI Ca­noe Marathon race or­gan­is­ers yes­ter­day an­nounced changes to the boat weight rules for the three-day, 120km gru­elling race. The Dusi rules state that ev­ery K1 kayak should weigh a min­i­mum of 12kg, in­clu­sive of all reg­u­lar ac­ces­sories. The ma­jor change is the en­force­ment of this reg­u­la­tion, with far stricter polic­ing in place on ev­ery stage of the race. The top five men and women’s boats, to­gether with the top three ju­nior boys and girl’s craft, will go through a com­pul­sory weigh-in at the end of ev­ery stage, after the tra­di­tional pre-race weigh-in pro­ce­dure was scrapped.
