The safety of our participants and members is at the heart of everything we do.  Whether it be your first time on the water or your last training session before a big race, the team at FRBC will always ensure that both the facilities and equipment are in top working order and the session can be run in a safe environment.  We also require that everyone who joins as a member has passed both a navigation and on-water assessment so we can be sure that the highest standards are maintained.

Our Club Water Safety Advisor is Alastair Horn.  He can be contacted on [email protected].

Our Child Welfare Officer is Adam Freeman-Pask.  He can be contacted on [email protected].

On the Water

The Tideway code dictates the rules of navigating on the Thames and it is a requirement that all of our members have read it and understand it.  A printed copy of the code is always available at the club but a digital copy can be found here >

A video summarising the Tideway Code is at the bottom of this page.

If you do see or have an incident on the water this will need to be reported to British Rowing using the Incident Reporting Form >
