With ever changing times, there are a number of clubs who have changed contacts in the last few months.
Can ALL clubs please complete the ‘Club Contact March 2021’
This requires only the contact info for main first contact (which will be shared with all CPGA clubs) and second contact (CPGA use only). The safety and welfare officers info will be collected separately at a later date, so please make sure that you have that when needed.
Please note that the first contact should be a generic email and not a personal email.
This will be published to all CPGA clubs on the 24th March, just over a week away, so make sure that your club is included by completing the information.

The map out of lockdown has now been published.
Rowing can resume on the 29th March providing all COVID secure protocols are in place. Please revisit your risk assessments, update as needed and if there are any aspects that you know can be improved take this time to do so.
Some key points to remember when rowing in COVID secure measures, which is required from all.

  • Social distancing where possible
  • Masks on launch and recovery
  • No changing of crews/cox during a rowing session 
  • No stopping to socialize / turning around during the row
  • Wearing of masks / face shields for coxes
  • Cleaning boat and equipment between rowing sessions and after use
  • Contact tracing in place (see Weekly Update 40 for QR codes / NHS tracing)

Remember that the rule of six / two households applies when not rowing and no indoor mixing of different households is allowed. Although dates have been published, for further releasing of the lockdown, please note that they are ‘no earlier than’ and dependant on data.

Further information will be published in due course.

Until the 21st June (projected current date by the Government) gatherings are limited to no more than 30 people. Whilst guidance is still being sort regarding regattas, it is looking likely that what we are used to as a gig event will currently not be able to take place prior to that date, if any events at all. We are still seeking clarification.

If your club has an event prior to the 21st June and you wish to submit an alterative date at this stage, we will add to an updated fixture list.


If you are listed below, please can you inform us of the person who was in attendance or whether there was no attendance from your club at the AGM last week. (Sunday 17th January 2021)

2020 was a quite different year in terms of rowing.

Some clubs have not taken to the water since last March, some briefly between lockdowns and many looking forward to a return as soon as possible.

We are all aware that we need to keep a record of membership, so even though your rowing register might look sparse for the first quarter of 2021 or if you are a club who has managed to maintain or even grow your membership it is important that we track this information for the sport as a whole. The information will be shared with all once we have the final few clubs completing the 2020 rowing reg requirement.

Please can you therefore submit your club rowing registers for the 1st quarter by the 15th April. If you do not already have the form, please visit the CPGA webpage and under ‘Forms’ you will see the CPGA Rowing Reg March 2021 form listed.


Thanks to all those who have submitted rowing registers, throughout 2020, what a year! 

We are all aware that there was no rowing from the 16th March until the 29th August and from the 4th November until the 2nd December. 

The final Rowing Register for 2020 was due on the 30th December.All missing registers listed below. Please remember that if there are no changes you still need to let us know.

Please remember that there were changes to the format of the 2020 Rowing Register, follow the link and download the doc – Insert-Club Name – CPGA Rowing Reg March 2020
