Rowing Safety

As with any sport or activity, rowing has its own set of hazards and dangers. For starters, rowing boats aren't exactly the lightest of vessels, and being out on the water can still pose a risk for even the most experienced rower or swimmer. Another hazard that comes with rowing is also towards your equipment. Unsafe or inexperienced handling can lead to damaged rowing equipment, as well as cause injury to ourselves or other team members. All of this can be costly

Last week, SSRS had the privilege of installing their Sliding Arm Boat racks in the ANU (Australian National University) Boathouse in Canberra. As you can see from the 'before' pictures, the boathouse was a bit limited with it's storage options.

If your boat house has vertical roof space that is un-used - take a look at this video. Let us introduce the solution to all your boat storage problems! The Space Saver Rowing Systems mechanical

Water safety is very important in rowing, and crash safety most of all. There are many ways to avoid crashes in rowing but more importantly you've got to know how to deal with a crash if it occurs. Sometimes you can’t avoid a collision. Rowing boats are small and bigger boats can have trouble seeing them while speedboats coming around a corner often don’t have the reaction time to avoid them.
