Tips for enjoying the river and making the most of your session.

  1. Rowing a skerry is obviously an outdoor sport, therefore students and staff should wear suitable sports clothing that is both comfortable and is ideally made of synthetic material, so it will dry quickly.
  2. If it is hot or the sun is hot the students should consider bringing water, a sun hat, sun cream (subject to your schools policy). Be aware that on the river the UV light reflects back from the water so there is an increased chance of sunburn.
  3. If it is wet, or cold, students should bring a fleece and a waterproof outer layer to put on. When the student is coxing, after having been rowing, they can become very cold and these layers are important.
  4. The member of staff from your school should brief the students about the standards of behaviour expected from them during the session.
  5. Unfortunately, there are no changing facilities by the river, and students should change before leaving school. Toilets are available before and after we go out on the river.
