Training on the Water – General
The decision to go afloat rests with the individual or crew. No criticism will be faced by anyone unwilling to row when they believe it is unsafe to do so
All river outings at ERC must be formally risk assessed by the person in charge (normally the coach) using the Water Training/Outing procedure, including the Rowing Safety Matrix for Supervised or Unsupervised Outings. That person must, as a minimum, sign the outing book (in the main boathouse) to confirm this has been done.

If the outing is unsupervised the procedure outlined must be followed. The Procedure can be downloaded here
