For the purpose of this example the sequence of legs will be swim, run, board, and run.
(a) Swim and board competitors shall position themselves at the SCO line. Runners shall position themselves on the seaward side of the green and yellow turning flag.
Note: Runners are permitted to enter the water to tag the incoming competitor and may wade, porpoise off the bottom with their feet, catch waves and/or run to the turning flags, but are not permitted to swim at any time, (this includes taking an overarm action to either catch or stay on a wave).
(b) On the starting signal the Swimmer shall enter the water, round the swimming buoys and then visibly tags with the first Runner (refer section 2.28 for definition of a tag). The tag can be effected anywhere between the last turning buoy and the seaward side of the first green and yellow turning flag.
(c) The first runner shall then proceed around the green and yellow turning flags and visibly tags with the board paddler who is waiting, with their board, and with their toes on or behind the SCO line or on the shoreward side of the SCO line.
(d) The board paddler shall then paddle around the board course and visibly tags with the second runner. The tag can be effected anywhere between the last turning buoy and the seaward side of the first green and yellow turning flag.
(e) The second runner shall then proceed around the first green and yellow flag, past the second green and yellow flag on the shoreward side and finish between the two green flags.
(f) Competitors in the 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 may be disqualified.
Note 1: The SCO line only is required for the swim start and a board changeover i.e. once a race has commenced, there is no requirement for an outgoing competitor to cross this line after a changeover, but the board paddler must be tagged on the shoreward side of the SCO line.
