ERC PFD Policy

This policy applies to rowers who engage in unsupervised rowing (rowing when no safety boat is on the water).
Only rowers 18 years of age and older may engage in unsupervised rowing.
Please also see the ERC’s policy on rowing club boats outside of regular practice times.
As of 2015, the ERC will no longer supply PFDs to adult rowers.
Rowers who engage in unsupervised rowing:

  • must wear a PFD
  • must supply their own PFD
