British Rowing have gone above and beyond what we had hoped CUCBC would be able to provide; you can find detailed guidance (including an example risk assessment) here <https://www.britishrowing.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/200522-Coronavirus-Advice-Returning-to-Rowing-FINAL2.pdf>.
Please note however that we’ve heard from some colleges that they will not be permitting any use of their boathouses this side of the summer vacation, so it’d be wise to check with your college authorities before you start trying to come up with any plans. Please also note that some boathouse staff have been furloughed and therefore will not be available to reply to your queries - please find out who the relevant person / committee in your college is and contact them instead if this is the case.
We’d also like to repeat our reminder that colleges have the decision making authority of how and when to reopen their facilities, and in all instances you should ensure your college authorities have been consulted and signed off on any plans you put in place.

> You may be aware that British Rowing released new guidance last Wednesday which allows clubs to put in place plans to allow single scullers (or doubles / pairs with members of the same household) to start going out again. It is important to note that this should not be viewed as a re-opening of boathouses, but rather the first small step of making some small boats accessible to those who are competent enough to use them without supervision.
> At this point, we’d like to encourage you not to rush into implementing these plans. We hope to publish some guidance in the next few days to help you with your planning, as the circumstances at each of your boathouses will of course be very different and thus require different rules and procedures. Colleges have the decision making authority of how and when to reopen their facilities, and in all instances you should ensure your college authorities have been consulted and signed off on any plans you put in place.
> Best wishes,
