Basic Rules

  • When at sea the Cox is in command of the skiff.

  • Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) must be available for everyone in the boat and can be worn at anytime. The cox is at liberty to decide if they must be worn at any time. For non-swimmers the PFD must be a lifejacket and it is their own responsibility to ensure that there is one aboard.

  • The Cox must wear a PFD at all times. For non-swimmers the PFD must be a lifejacket and it is their own responsibility to ensure that there is one aboard.

  • Children must wear PFDs at all times.

  • All rowers must be in good health – if in doubt consult a doctor before taking part.

  • Rowers are advised to take drinking water to help prevent dehydration.

  • Beware of the elements (wind, rain, sun, snow…) and dress accordingly.

  • Contending with difficult weather conditions is part of the fun of rowing, but safe enjoyment is the aim, not recklessness.

  • If in doubt, don’t go out
