2017 Members Info Book


The Clubs' safety procedures can be found here.

There are a number of basic safety requirements that members are expected to carry out in normal daily operations.

When a crew is about to go on the water, an entry needs to be made in the log book that is situated at the front of the shed between the sweep oars. This entry also needs to be signed off when the same crew successfully returns to the shed. Any damage during the row can be noted at this time.

Marine Incidents:

If an incident occurs when you are on the river, that involves some injury to a rower or damage to a boat, or a collision with another vessel on the river, then this needs to be reported to the B&GPS Club Safety Officer first and to then Rowing Qld and Maritime Services Qld (MSQ) using the form on the front of the RQI web site. It can be found here.

Brisbane River Code of Conduct
