The average and minimum age and gender requirements do not apply to coxswains. The age category of the crew (excluding any coxswain), shall be calculated by dividing the total number of years of age of the crew by the number of members of the crew. The age category you will compete in for Rowing will be determined as at 31 December of the year of the event. For example, if you are 42 during Games time but have turned 43 by 31 December, you would compete in the 43 years or more age category.
