Safety on the Tideway


With the cold weather and lots of training and racing on the Tideway, we thought it prudent to provide a little safety reminder. Our very own Captain has helped developed this handy video on the key points of navigating the Tideway (although it does make me very seasick watching it!). Very useful for newbies and veterans alike! Please take a few minutes to view it and make sure you’re up to speed on the Tideway Code. The video can be found by clicking on this link: http://www.boatingonthethames.co.uk/ and is called ‘Safely Navigating the Upper Tidal Thames’. Happy viewing!

Additionally, please download the documents below which highlight the key danger areas for those of us located on the Embankment…turning by Putney
Pier
and rowing under Hammersmith Bridge on the flood tide.
