New RowSafe is here!
RowSafe 2016 is here! It provides safety advice to rowers, clubs, events and anyone else who takes part in rowing.

RowSafe will evolve as we learn from experience and receive feedback from the rowing community. If you have any feedback, or if you have any comments or questions, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The next review of RowSafe is due in Spring 2017. The update process will take some time so the closing date for suggestions will be in January 2017.
