Safety - Rowing in the dark

For any outing (launches too) that goes out in the dark, ends up in the dark or there is any doubt about it getting dark when you are out, you need to make sure your boat has lights. Lights must be mounted on the bow and stern. The Environment agency recommend white lights fore and aft but the club policy is to use a white light on the bow and a red light on the stern. This allows people to determine the direction of travel. Lights fixed to the riggers can be obscured when negotiating bends and turning so make sure you can always be seen.

It is your responsibility to ensure any boat you go out in has appropriate lights.

The lights shown below are held on by an integral strap. They can be fixed on to the rigger in seconds and removed without the need for any special bracket or fixture and the batteries last for hours. They are cheap and widely available in stores.

Stay Safe!
