• The boat you register must be a real H1 Unlimited hydroplane.
• When registering boats, the amount of same U-#s shall be limited to 2. For instance, if the U-7 Graham Trucking and U-7 Valken Sports are registered, we will not accept any more boats with the U-# as U-7.
• Only the defending national champion is allowed to use the number U-1. Since this is the first season of SNHL, no one is allowed to use any boat with the number U-1.
• DMZ zones will be in effect. If you go inside a DMZ, the resulting penalty will be a disqualification for the heat only. Diagrams of each course detailing DMZ zones will be available before the season begins.
• If you cut the course, you must pass two inside markers (buoys) before you can claim the lane.
• If you flip or otherwise crash the boat during qualifying, you may continue to complete your qualifying laps.
• If you flip or otherwise crash the boat during a heat, you are not allowed to continue racing in said heat. It does not matter whether your boat lands upside-down or right-side-up. If you crash during a heat, you must hit the ESC key and “Leave” the heat. This will result in a “DNF” or “DNS” and no points will be awarded.

• All other drivers who are not participating in a Heat may not enter the channel titled “On the Water”.
• If you need to leave your computer, please enter the channel titled “AFK”. The Race Director will check to see if anyone is in this channel prior to beginning a Heat.
