Participation in seasonal regattas is up to you, but by default, your participation is activated. You can always change your settings if you decide you're not in the racing mood:
1. Open Settings by tapping the gear icon in the top-left corner of the screen
2. Go to Additional settings and uncheck Take part in seasonal regatta

IMPORTANT NOTE! If all the co-op members opt out of an ongoing seasonal regatta or if your co-op is late for the race, it is demoted to the next lower league.

If you change your mind and decide to rejoin the race, you'll need to do one of the following:
- check off Take part in seasonal regatta in the additional settings menu.
- tap the Pier and then tap the Take part in seasonal regatta button in the first tab of the window that opens.

Remember that you can take part in interseasonal regattas regardless of what your racing status is set to.

A co-op leader or a co-leader can restrict a co-op member from participating in regattas. Learn more in the article, How do I restrict a co-op member from participating in regattas?.
