    • You must pass two buoys to establish your lane after cutting.

    Lane infractions in first turn
    • Greater enforcement is needed in calling penalties.
    • Penalty should only be called when a boat’s roostertail crosses in front of another boat.
    • This penalty will be reviewed post-race.

    Commitment buoy during mill
    • Lane commitment buoy is the entrance pin of Turn 2
    • You must hold your lane from the entrance pin of Turn 2 to the Starting Line.
    • If you are boxed in leading up to the start, you have to back off and choose an available lane.

    Trailer boat in final
    • Trailer must start at the orange buoy prior to the starting line.
    • Trailer boat jumping penalty will be monitored as such: If the trailer boat crosses said buoy before the clock strikes 0, then the trailer jumped the gun.
