COVID-19 Guidance for Members & Parents

Rowing of the Gigs, Flash Boats and Skiffs is now able to resume within the club under updated guidelines from the Government and the CRA. 

The Club have set out new guidelines and carried out a Risk Assessment to which each member must conform to in order to keep themselves and others safe.


Each member is requested to read the following before any rowing is undertaken


  • Initially, rowing of boats to take place within the same groups of people, when possible


  • Face coverings are to be worn by all rowers and the Cox whilst launching and putting away the boat; club members are responsible for bringing their own face coverings

  • Everyone is responsible for sanitising their own hands before and after rowing; club members are responsible for bringing their own hand sanitiser


  • Cox’s are responsible for ensuring they are wearing a face and eye covering i.e. a visor or mask with sunglasses and should refrain from shouting


  • Crew members must not turn around to talk to each other whilst in the boat to minimise close face to face contact


  • Please allow 10 minutes either side of rowing to allow time for hands and equipment to be sanitised; you are responsible for ensuring this is done and must not rely on the person before you having sanitised the equipment. There will be fairy washing up liquid/ sanitising spray, a brush and a bucket available for each boat so equipment can be washed down


  • You must maintain social distancing at all times at a minimum of 1 meters if you are not from the same household
