The pairs team of Jacob Pope and Christopher Lee from team Origami Risk & Rewards: Row for Hemophilia, will no longer be participating in the Great Pacific Race 2016.
The safety of our crews is our primary concern. The Race Rules, which are agreed to by all crews prior to their acceptance as a team, are in place to ensure all participants understand what is required of them in order to participate in the race. Team Origami Risk & Rewards: Row for Hemophilia failed to meet the minimum requirements of the Race Rules and so are not permitted to race in the Great Pacific Race 2016.
The Race Rules are written with the benefit of extensive experience from multiple expert sources to manage the risk to participants as much as is practically possible.
