Rowing and sculling take place on open water, on rivers, canals and lochs. 

Water and weather conditions can be changeable and there may be other water users to consider.  An awareness of the risks involved and an understanding of how to stay safe are important.

Scottish Rowing has a number of guidance documents aimed at keeping all participants in the sport safe, whether they are rowers, coaches or supporters and all Scottish Rowing affiliated clubs are required to adhere to the Water Safety Code.
