Safety is improved through an understanding of procedures by ALL of us. Below is a list of the basic things to be aware of at regattas. The details are found on the Regatta Info page of this website:

  1. Regatta Rules  is a handy document created by RQ for the competitor and included in the competitor handbook it is dated 2018 but it is still current.
  2. Traffic flow at regattas in training and in racing: launching, warm up and racing (refer to venue maps and the competitor handbook)
  3. An accident scenario and what can happen Why Traffic Flow is Important
  4. Each BSRA member school is strongly encouraged to schedule a Boat Race Official (BRO) visit prior to the racing season. This can be organised by phoning Rowing Queensland on 07 3842 1200 or emailing on This is at each member school’s cost. This is a valuable presentation for ALL rowers.
