Covid-19 Update

The CPGA has issued guidance to suspend all rowing activities until the government ease restrictions due to covid19.  The text of their message is:

Following government advice, the CPGA advise suspending all gig rowing activity, at all levels.

Gig rowing activity includes club training, league, CPGA and any regattas, plus any course from 17th March until required subject to continued review.

The decision has been taken following the government advice in the interests of rowers, coxes, coaches, umpires, volunteers, supporters and the wider gig rowing community.

Where possible all are encouraged to maintain their own fitness, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.

The CPGA will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide updates on the impact to the season in the coming weeks.

The Board has reviewed the message and agrees with the instruction to suspend all rowing activities until we get the go ahead to start again.  So, with immediate effect, no rowing using club boats is to take place.  As soon as we get clearance to resume rowing, we will let you know!
