Hot Weather Policy

School Rowing  does not fall under the auspices of either SAAS (boys) or IGSSA (girls) guidelines.  Regattas are controlled by Rowing SA.  The Rowing SA Hot Weather Policy can be viewed here.

HOT WEATHER POLICY – JUNIOR ROWING

If on the day of training The Advertiser prints the forecast to be 36°C or more - training will be CANCELLED.  On days over 30°C - we will be making sure the students are hydrated and will provide sunscreen.  Training loads will also be monitored and we will utilise our air conditioned boatshed gym and ergo room - HATS ARE COMPULSORY.  

The above only relates to afternoon rowing training, Saturday training will proceed as it is earlier in the day.  Regatta days are monitored by Rowing SA and usually go ahead as racing occurs early in the day in most cases.

HOT WEATHER POLICY – INTERMEDIATE & SENIOR ROWING

If on the day of training The Advertiser prints the forecast to be 38°C or more - training will be CANCELLED.  On days over 30°C - we will be making sure the students are hydrated and will provide sunscreen.  Training loads will also be monitored and we will utilise our air conditioned boatshed gym and ergo room  - HATS ARE COMPULSORY.  

The above only relates to afternoon rowing training, Saturday training will proceed as it is earlier in the day.  Regatta days are monitored by Rowing SA and usually go ahead as racing occurs early in the day in most cases.

 

Capsize/ Swamping Procedure

Fortunately rowing boats rarely get swamped or capsize!

In the event of your boat capsizing or being swamped, there is no cause for alarm, remember, your boat will not sink so DON’T PANIC!

Once in the water, a crew should never leave the boat until rescued by another craft or until reaching the shore – NEVER LEAVE THE BOAT!

When a swamping appears certain, the coxswain should steer their crew toward the nearest shore.  If water finally swamps your boat, quietly ease yourself into the water alongside your rigger.

Do not sit in the boat after a swamping, this makes the boat sink lower in the water and may frighten non swimmers, this may also cause major damage to the craft.

Once in the water hold onto the rigger, take orders from the stroke of your crew and by kicking your feet, propel your craft to the shore.

At all times remember that there is no need for panic and, for your own safety – NEVER LEAVE THE BOAT!
