9. Schedule and times
1:1 - Violations result in disqualification
If participants break the rules, the competition management can unanimously decide on disqualification and exclude the team. The disqualification applies to both the sub-competition and the cup. Disqualification cannot be appealed.
If suspected cheating or fraud should occur during the sub-competitions, it must be reported immediately to the competition management. The suspected cheating shall documented in the form of photo or film documentation. As the competition management needs documentation that proves the alleged cheating in order to be able to make decisions.
Decisions on disqualification are made per competition day and the matter is concluded on the spot the same day.
1:2 - Joint start
Joint start applies to all participating teams. It is not permitted to go to another place where the boat is located and start fishing there or to pick up the boat and "trail" after the start and go to other water than the day's competition water. This is because "equal for all" is the rule that applies.
2:1 - Total length is calculated on the 5 longest perches
The 5 longest perches will count towards the final score for a team. If the team catches more than that, only the five longest still count towards the total length.
If two or more teams have the same total length at the end of the competition, the longest registered perch will act as "kicker fish", i.e. the team with the longest perch wins. This can be repeated until it is possible to distinguish between the layers.
2.2 – Controllers
The organizer has the right to provide inspectors for each sub-competition, the organizer also has the authority to place the inspectors in boats of their choice during the competition day.
If a team has an inspector in their boat, they must be prepared to be interviewed and photographed. The material will be used for marketing purposes for the Swedish Perch Tournament.
3. Cup & points
3:1 - Cup
The cup consists of 4 sub-competitions at different locations in Sweden.
3:2 - Cup win
The team with the most points after all competitions are completed wins that cup. At most, the teams can credit the collected points from 3 sub-competitions, which means that the highest possible score for the cup is a total of 60 points. * should more teams get the same points, see point 3.3A
3.3 - In the event of a tie after the end of the tour
Then the following steps apply according to steps A, B and C, see below:
A) In case of equal total points between two or more teams, the 4th part of the competition will be included in the final score. The obtained placement from the 4th heat will generate extra points for the final table. This is to reward all the participating teams who line up in all competitions.
B) If the points standings are still the same after 3.3 A, it will be distinguished by comparing the respective team's longest fish recorded in the cup. This can be repeated until it is possible to separate the layers.
C) If there are still equal points, there remains a "dot throw" according to the rules of the draw. Information is available if this moment occurs.
3:4 - Points
All teams participating in the sub-competitions receive at least 1 cup point. If a team is in all sub-competitions, the team receives at least 3 cup points (see point 3.2).

The captain's meeting takes place at 07:45, where the race management informs about the necessary information.
Joint start is 08:00 and then all boats must be in the competition water. The race management wants boats with the biggest engines to place at the front.
