  • Monday 2nd May sailing from St Mary’s the first sailing (11:15) is full.


We are nearly there, just a few final hiccups that need resolving before we publish dates to each club.  

Please note there have been requests that clubs keep their gigs up to a certain date, whilst it would be lovely to be able to accommodate requests, it simply isn’t possible and do a fair rota for gigs going to the islands.

First shipping date is Monday 7th March on the Gry Martha.
Costings for your information, this is additional to race entry fees.

Please continue to be aware that Covid has not disappeared. Numbers of infections are still high, but falling. Please remain sensible in your approach as a club and be ready to react if the situation changes.

We continue to recommend the following below.

With a significant rise in covid infections and the new variant, we recommend that when in close contact e.g. launching / loading a boat / enclosed space e.g. gig shed – masks are worn. We also recommend where possible to keep social distancing.

Lateral flow tests are now commonplace task for many, we would suggest that this is encouraged by clubs prior to any training session, in addition to, for many completing for work purposes. As well as reminding all members, that should they show a positive test do not attend training or if they show symptoms to not attend training.

Coxes may wish to return to wearing protecting eg face shield, eye protection, mask when coxing.

For CPGA clubs we offer the following guidance:

With cases of Covid rising, we encourage clubs to maintain a covid secure protocol.

  • Wash / sanitize hands regularly
  • Do not row / visit your club / regatta if you or anyone in your household are showing signs of covid
  • Encourage individuals to take lateral flow tests (still free of charge) if they are not already for their work
  • Continue to monitor with a Club QR code or the clubs method of track and track, or continue with the NHS QR code
  • Respect the rules set by your club and help yourself, club members and public stay healthy
  • Follow rules set out by your club to keep equipment and facilities clean
  • Be kind to your club committee who are giving their time to ensure all are safe and rowing can take place 

Social distancing no longer remains at 2 metres, but as a club you need to decide what you are happy with amongst members / as a committee.

Likewise, indoors, close contact when lifting gigs, confined spaces etc housing for a gig, clubs may wish to consider a policy regarding face coverings.

You may wish to set crews according to their wishes eg those that are double jabbed/ boosters, age groups, those continuing to wear masks etc
