UK Rowing Clubs - Water Safety Links

Home > Rowing > Safety > Events

This page will provide links, where I can find them, to safety related information for regattas and head races in the UK.

One thing we don't do particularly well as a sport is to have a common set of standards for safety cover at events. The Water Safety Code only requires launches to carry a defined set of equipment, and says nothing about the type of boats suitable for use as safety / rescue craft, their carrying capacity, the qualifications of the helm and crew, how many are required for typical events etc. Perhaps we should think about it?
