New procedures for 2017:

From January 2017, we will require all new and renewing members to read and understand some documentation that will ensure we are all aware of the risks associated with rowing, and what we need to do as club members to reduce these risks.

River Safety Video:
The Qld Government in conjunction with Rowing Qld has compiled a short 16-minute video on general river safety guidelines. You need to watch this before you apply or re-apply for membership. The link to the video is here:

Water Safety Education:
Rowing Qld has also developed 2 courses on water safety, that is particularly relevant to rowers. They can take up to an hour to complete, so give yourself enough time to understand the concepts and detail in each course for your own benefit. Do these courses! The link to these courses is here:  Just select the Rowing Qld Safety Course 1. Brisbane River and the Rowing Qld Safety Course 2. All Areas They are free to do.

The club has developed a Safety Management Plan. You will need to have read this document, and acknowledge that you will adhere to the guidelines that are published in the document. It can be found here:
