For larger races that need to check coxswain weights at the finish line, it helps reduce work to pass the coxswain deadweights directly to the Finish Marshal rather than mandating that the starter give that information to each referee going down the course. The heat sheets for the Finish Marshal show all of the entries and scratch information and also show the deadweights that weigh-ins has assigned to the coxswains. If a coxswain is not carrying the proper deadweight, convey the information to the Chief Judge to exclude the crew before the flight is marked Official.
