As of 15th August we are able to move to Phase E of British Rowing's "Return to Rowing" policy.
This means that as well as single sculls, mixed household crews are also permitted in II seat and IV seat boats, both coxed and coxless. VIIIs are still not permitted and neither are on-water competitions. This is not a return to normality so all outings and use of the boathouse are still subject to strict conditions. Full documentation will be available soon but below is a brief synopsis.
From the TRRC:
As rowing begins to return to the waters again we are aware that there have been, and will be instances of coronavirus at clubs in the Thames area. We would like to create some further guidance and recommendations for all clubs based on learnings from clubs that have had positive cases.
If your club does experience a positive case we would ask that you share with us any information that would help other clubs in their own responses to positive outbreaks. Obviously this will be treated in confidence and anonolysed fur the purpose of organisational learning. As we start to look towards competition returning this will also help us to make informed representations about dealign with infection in that context.
We have come up with some questions that might help:
If you have other comments that would help other clubs please do add them. All responses will be treated anonymously and club names will be removed from any guidance that is produced. Contact chairman [at] thames - rrc [dot] org
Also a reminder that no vessels may navigate under Hammersmith Bridge until further notice. All the details regarding this situation are here
