  • This is for new members who have rowing experience - demonstrate your skills and get cleared to use the fleet.

Registration is closed

This Checkout is for new members with previous rowing experience who want to use the fleet: as such, it is a prerequisite to using the rowing craft. It is also recommended for those who haven't been on the water in a while and wish to refresh their general knowledge of handling the Echos.

We will be getting on the water and rowing, so please dress appropriately.

The Checkout covers:

  • Overview of the Echo fleet
  • Policies and practices
  • Signing out and use of logbooks
  • Rigging and de-rigging
  • Launching and landing
  • Distance rowing: where to go, tides, wind/waves, currents, hazards
  • Self-rescue: i.e. getting back into the boat from deep water

The self-rescue is done at the end of the Checkout; as it typically involves spending about three minutes in the water, you may wish to bring a wetsuit. 

New members must demonstrate a successful self-rescue to pass the Checkout. Therefore, depending on the outcome of the Checkout, you may be asked to take an Introductory Lesson
