All boats start the race on the starting line. They contend for the lead by racing around the 1st and 2nd turn markers in order, and head for the goal line after making 3 laps (1 lap = 600 meters).
Unlike the standing start used in athletic events, BOAT RACE employs the premature start system in which boats must pass the starting line within a second after the starting clock reaches zero.
Standby warm-up refers to the period from the time the boats receive the signal to leave the docks (pit) to the moment they cross the starting line. Boats must round the 2nd turn marker, an orange buoy, racing in a counterclockwise direction. At this point, all boats must find a position. Following in a position behind another boat is not allowed, and is judged as a violation.
In BOAT RACE, it is advantageous for a boat to pass the starting line ahead of all the others. If a boat crosses the line too early before the clock hits zero, it is called a "flying start," or if it crosses too late after the clock hits zero, it is called a "late start." In either case, the boat is scratched from the race and bets on that boat are refunded. Be sure not to lose or dispose of the betting ticket.
BOAT RACE is a competition in which 6 boats race counterclockwise along a circular boat course of 600m for 3 laps (1800m). There are 12 races a day. Betters predict the order that the 6 boats will cross the finish line. Cash dividends are paid out when predictions are correct.
|Boat No.1: White||Boat No.4: Blue|
|Boat No.2: Black||Boat No.5: Yellow|
|Boat No.3: Red||Boat No.6: Green|
The odds refers to the expected payout rate of dividends for the betting ticket. For example, if a 100-yen betting ticket is given a rate of 6.2, the payout will be 620 yen.
