From the regional Rowing Safety Advisor:

In a few weeks summer will end, but already the nights are beginning to draw in with 15 minutes difference between sunrise in a week. Can you remind any crews boating in the evenings that they should consider if they need lights. The chances are that the batteries for lights havenít been changed from when they were last used in the spring. Check that the batteries are in good condition and replace if necessary. Many clubs are beginning to have good lights for their boats and I will name Latymer School, as a club who have shown what is possible.


Cygnet have USB charged lights that simply attach to the boat decks with a strong magnetic tape. It couldn't be easier so no excuses. The lights and charger are (or should be) with the cox boxes.


BBC weather publish sunrise and sunset times and legally your boat must be correctly lit if out before sun rise or after sunset. Details are in the Rowing Code (page 15 & 16) or see below. Also note the bit about wearing bright or white clothing in low light
