Non members - Regretably, we are not able to take any new rower applications until further notice due to the back log of new rower applications received in 2020 who require priority training , as soon as we are able to get them on the water.
Adult rowers are 17 and over and for the youth section, you need to be between the ages of 11 and 16 (School Years 7 - 11)
Check the local weather before your row
Guidance on cancelling rowing
extract from the clubs H&S document;
"Rowing activity at sea should not be commenced if any of the following criteria are forecast to occur in the intended sea area for the rowing activity during a period of two hours immediately after launch:
• mean wind speed of 15 statute miles per hour and a maximum of 19 statute mph;
• sea state exceeds 3 (wave height 0.6 metres mean, 1.0 metres maximum);
• visibility is less than1 kilometre.
Lower constraints should be applied if the crew includes more than two junior or novice rowers or if the crew as a whole is assessed by the coxswain as weaker than average.
If sea and weather conditions in the bay are unsuitable, then rowing may be confined within the harbour provided it is safe to launch and recover the gig(s) and there is no conflict with other harbour traffic."
How the wind and its direction could affect rowing within the harbour Wind Direction map, an aid to seeing how the wind direction could affect rowing.
After considering all the guidance and factors above an assessment of the rowing for the day in question will be made and it may reluctantly be cancelled.
