Social media is a powerful tool. Positive presentation is a fantastic way to present our sport.

Currently eyes are watching, make sure that your club / individuals are always following guidance.

Risk Assessments, make sure these are current and up to date with the latest guidance / government rulings.


All the Covid advice / guidance can be found on the CPGA Website Covid page.

Sport England some guidance / information and FAQ can be found here.

Please remember that all guidance needs to be followed when rowing.


Over half the membership responded. We are aware that those who have not are a mix of yes and no.


Thanks to all those who attended. A positive forum and a great way of sharing good practice and informing others about what has worked etc. There are currently no plans to hold more but should there be a requirement we will.

Key comments / info:

  • Most clubs are not currently rowing juniors, those that are have exclusive junior kit.
  • Most clubs are not running novice sessions.
  • A number of clubs are using a pump spray for cleaning.
  • Monitor potential local lockdowns and the implications for rowing.
  • Rule of 6 doesn’t apply to organised sport but need to be conscious that once rowing has finished should not be in a group of more than 6.
  • Disposing of waste once cleaning completed, most are allocating a member from that bubble to be responsible for waste disposal.
  • Clubs are mainly rowing in bubbles, these ideally should not cross. If there is cross over, this would affect everyone within both bubbles.
  • Bubbles / crew details should be stored for 21 days for track and trace purposes, many are using google or similar online as they are safe and GDPR compliant.


Thanks to those who have already submitted dates for 2021.

We currently have no idea what next year will hold regarding regattas, but we need to prepare.

So please can you select your best three (3) dates and submit in order of preference by the 30th September 2020. Simply send to


We are all aware that there has been no rowing since the 16th March and that some rowing is now beginning.

We are therefore not requiring a June register, but if you are back on the water by the 30th September, please submit your rowing register.

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
