BRITISH ROWING HAS ADVISED TO CEASE ALL CLUB BASED ACTIVITY. WHAT DOES CLUB BASED ACTIVITY MEAN?
It is important for the whole of society that we all strictly follow the Government guidance around coronavirus and specifically that around self-isolating and social distancing. For this reason, all clubs are to cease all club-based activity (including on-water, off-water training, single sculling, social functions on-site and congregating as a group off-site).
What about Single SCullers IN Private Boats?
Whilst we fully support the importance of maintaining physical and mental health during this difficult time, we have been advised that single sculling, whether through club facilities ceases until further notice. We feel that there is no justification for the travel between a person’s home and the club being classed as anything but ‘non-essential travel’. In addition, waterway authorities (such as the Environment Agency, Port of London Authorit) are asking waterway users to cease recreational usage.
HOW DO I ACCESS VIRTUAL WORKOUTS?
All our live virtual workouts are access via zoom. Simply follow the link in the club calendar or enter the session ID number to the zoom site to connect to the session. All the relevant information for each session can be found in the club calendar event.
