Steering, Navigation and General Guidelines
Standard instructions and information for all LRC crews and scullers can be found here.
All members taking boats on the water must be familiar with the river and the rules for navigating it. You can read and download further important documents here:
- Introduction to steering on the Tideway
- Rowing when the tide is turning
- Basic Principles of Navigation (useful illustrated map of the Tideway)
Please visit the Thames Regional Rowing Council's website for further information.
As autumn sets in, and we have water sessions on weekday mornings and evenings, we will need to have lights on the boats when we go out.
All boats need TWO flashing WHITE lights on the bow canvas, and TWO constant WHITE lights on the stern canvas. Lights should be visible through 180 degrees. All athletes should have enough lights to go out in a single scull if required.
DON'T EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE TO HAVE LIGHTS FOR YOUR BOAT. NO LIGHTS = NO OUTING
