C. IIRC Race Series events have three types of categorised Relay or Team:

  1. Team Relay (2000m) consists four competitors assigned a rowing machine on which they must complete a 2k as quickly as possible with as many changeovers as they like, managing their own individual fitness levels & abilities. They may optimise the foot straps for performance but nothing else of the ergometer may be altered. Relay Categories will have only one winner per category.
  2. Linked Concept 2 Slider pairs – teams consisting two competitors simultaneously racing a 2k with their average output determining ‘boat’ speed [As per Concept 2 Venue Race Manager software].
  3. Interpro Teams consisting four competitors per Irish Province simultaneously racing their category distance or set time having their cumulative finish positions summed whereupon the province with the lowest score wins.
