Staying Safe

Rowing and sculling are outdoor activities, so it is important to recognise that contending with difficult weather conditions, other water users and using different waterways is all part of the sport. Rowing has an excellent safety record, but it can be easy to become complacent.

'Row Safe: A Guide to Good Practice in Rowing' provides clubs and individuals with guidance on a wide range of safety topics, education and training. It acts as a basis on which clubs can responsibly develop safe practices, tailoring them to their specific rowing programme and local waterway. 

RowHow, our online coaching and training resource, provides a forum for Regional and Club Rowing Safety Advisers.
