FLCRC code of conduct and a C-A-S-E for Member Safety and Respect are set out in FLCRC Rules.
Every FLCRC rower needs to be familiar with this Emergency Action Plan for Capsized Rowing Shells!
FLCRC Rower's Handbook contains the clubs general rules, safety procedures, emergency procedures and an extensive glossary of rowing terms.

Considerations when heading out to row:
River Current: consider rowing upstream first – if any problems, its easier to get back with the current.
Bridge: avoid the need to navigate the bridge (twice) for inexperienced crews, or for anyone when the current is a little faster – this is an accident waiting to happen - people and boats.
Ensure everyone has a lifejacket on board, boat has a whistle, someone has a phone.
SIGN OUT the BOAT and CREW on the clipboard at exit of boathouse. All boats, all clubs.
