Check Your Heel Restraints

Check Your Heel Restraints.

From the 1 April the Rules of Racing has been amended requiring each heel to be restrained to prevent it from rising higher than 7cm, as measured at right angles from the footplate. Furthermore, the heel restraint should be in working order and the foot release must be self-acting and not require the intervention of the athlete or a rescuer.

If you do turn up to a race and upon inspection your boat does not meet this new criteria, then you will not be able to boat until this has been fixed. If you cannot fix your boat to meet these requirements then you will not be able to race.

For the full version of the Rules of Racing 2016 and an overview of other rule changes for 2016 click here.

Leeds Beckett Coach Wanted. Leeds Beckett Coach Wanted.

Leeds Beckett University are going into the 16-17 season currently without a Rowing Coach.

The club received a Sport England grant last year which was used to purchase new boats for the club, who have approximately 30+ members attending training each week during academic term time. They train both indoor (at our Headingley Campus on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6pm-8pm) and outdoor (at Yeadon Tarn mostly in the early mornings) although, presently, days and times are very flexible and can be based around coaching availability. The club are keen to develop both their participation and performance strands, and compete in British Universities & Colleges Sport competitions as well as regional meets.

We are able to pay a coach £1500 for the year, but there may be flexibility with this if required

For more information please contact Sarah Humphreys
