Protocol and Etiquette regarding non coached rows (off season):
1. Never take a boat on the water without first notifying a coach, the
RRC and all of your parents.
2. Wait until you receive a confirmation from either a coach or a club…
member that you may do so and that someone will be available
to supervise your row on the water.
3. There should at all times be PERSONAL SAFETY DEVICES (life
vests) on your boat or the coach boat, even if you have a life
guard in your boat.
4. Leave the boat house as you found it and be sure the door is
locked. The person supervising the row should not have to
remain after you are off of the water to make sure that the jobs
were done properly. Please show your appreciation to the club
for the privilege of rowing off season by taking good care of the
equipment and the Hudson River Maritime Museum Riverport barn.
5. NEVER SHOW UP TO TAKE A BOAT OUT WITHOUT FIRST DOING FIRST FOUR THINGS ON THIS LIST.
Remember, the club is a volunteer organization and anyone who shows
up to provide supervision should be treated with respect.
With a little courtesy and common sense you can enjoy a great summer on the water.
To join a row with the members of the club, go to the scheduling drop down and
follow the instructions there. Then email the member in charge of the row to
be added into the row.
(protocol last updated 8/10/17. These rules must be in keeping with the liability
needs of the Hudson River Maritime Museum where we share the use of the
boat launching docks. They will be updated periodically.)
