All contenders must wear a life jacket approved by the United States Coast Guard or a life jacket that will completely float an unconscious contestant. In addition to the zipper closing, a “Wet Suit” jacket must feature a locking system. A locking device, zipper, or drawstring is required on a “Pull Over” or “Side Entry” jacket. All contestants who collide with any impediments in the water must wear a helmet (protective headgear), which is defined as an article of clothing designed and worn primarily to protect the head from injury.
Fallen Riders – Due to the public nature of some places and for the athlete’s safety, fallen riders must employ safety craft rather than swimming or going ashore, unless otherwise directed by a WWA Representative.
New Sites – Sites that are new to the WWA, whether or whether they have previously hosted an event, must be inspected by the WWA, an official, and/or an athlete representative (if provided to the WWA at no expense) well before the scheduled competition. This will be used to determine site layouts and any additional site preparations required to remove any potential safety hazards. At any time, the WWA reserves the right to make changes.
