Trafford Rowing Club-Water Safety

Water Safety

At Trafford RC we row on the historic Bridgewater Canal. Although we have plenty of water to row on, the canal and towpath are narrow and are also home to a number of other users including anglers, walkers, cyclists, narrowboats users, and another rowing club – Manchester University Boat Club.

In the summer the canal and towpath can get very busy, therefore we have put in place some safety and courtesy rules which should be followed by all members of both Trafford RC and Manchester University Boat Club.
