River Safety

There are several Club Powerpoint Presentations designed by Mark Edwards which are available for Club Members at the Club.   They are also referred to in the Handbook, and are now available as pdf files from the links below:

BARC safety on our water.pdf

BARC members responsibility.pdf

BARC basic safety for members on joining the Club.pdf

RIVER LEVEL – The Environment Agency now provides river heights on their website showing you whether the river is rising or falling at Cottingley Bridge!

You can find the link here

REMEMBER – This is not a definitive indicator on the safety of the river, and the usual risk assessment would still need to be carried out.  If the level is on or around O.86 metres the level at the Clubhouse will be around the high level mark.
