(a) Unless otherwise provided (e.g. IRB Teams, Surf Boat Relay, Life Saver Relay (boat to other legs only) and Beach Relay), relay event changeovers shall be effected by a competitor “tagging” with the next competitor in their team.
(b) Tagging is defined as one competitor using either hand to visibly touch the other competitor either on the hand or any other part of the body.
(c) The ongoing or outgoing competitor shall be positioned with toes on or behind the shoreward side of the changeover line but parts of the body may overhang the line.
(d) Competitors in Taplin and Cameron Relay events must commence their leg of the event from the (correct) position as allotted by the Marshall. If the competitor does not comply with this, the team risks being disqualified.
