Videoing while coaching
6th February 2017
The PLA launches have recently noticed some coaches videoing while coaching and driving the launch. This is a very dangerous practise and must stop. If your coaches want to record their crews rowing, then they must have a driver on board. One coach from a Tideway club was almost prosecuted for videoing while driving as he failed to spot another rowing boat and drove his launch over the bows of the other boat.
The PLA will stop any coach they see videoing and driving and may take further action.
