We Row In The Rain

June 02, 2017 at 7:44 AM

If you didn't know already, we row in the rain.

Practices will continue in the event of rain and teams/coxes/coaches are expected to show up. If there are severe storms in the area, teams will be notified by email if practice has been cancelled. It will be up to your team to schedule a make-up practice.

The following CRF rules apply if there are storms in the area:

  • Crews are not permitted to go on the water when lightning or thunder is present.
  • Crews must wait 30 minutes after the last audible thunder or visible thunder before launching.

Shells caught out on the river in a thunderstorm should seek shelter from the lightning under a bridge until the storm has passed if unable to make it back to the dock and off the water.

On the upside, rowing in the rain does make the water flatter ...
