Olympic Rowing Rules
All Olympic Rowing races are 2000 meters long. This is roughly equivalent to 1.25 miles. There are 6 lanes that are marked with buoys every 500 meters. The boats in a rowing competition can change lanes as long as they don't mess up other crews.
The boats are held and aligned at the start of the race to prevent a false start. Crews are allowed 1 false start each but although 2 false starts for one crew disqualifies them.
Rowing is usually played in 2, 4 , or 8. Also, theres an extra person present in the boat called a coxswain who coaches the rowers and steers the boat instead of rowing.
