COVID impact on Rowing SA’s 2020-21 Season

Dear South Australian Rowing Community,


A comprehensive assessment has been undertaken to determine the most appropriate and safe actions to take in the delivery of our regattas in 2020.


Priority has been given to our competitors to ensure they can compete within the COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.


The Rowing SA Board have outlined several key decisions regarding our regattas scheduled in 2020. Please refer to this letter for appropriate detail. Please note that these restrictions do not apply for the Australian Indoor Rowing Championships.

Clubs and Schools are reminded that all existing COVID-19 Safety Plans and practices must continue to be strictly adhered to and enforced. Stay home if you are unwell, keep 1.5 metre distance from others wherever and whenever possible, and adhere to the density requirement of 1 person per 2 square meters. The approach to training and regattas should focus on ‘get in, train/compete, get out’, to minimise as much unnecessary contact.
