Welcome to the Incident Reporting system.

Thank you for helping us make your rowing safer by reporting your incident. It is often asked, 'why bother to report at all?' so take a look at the reasons here and please pass on the message.

This reporting system is for everyone; clubs, individuals, events and 3rd parties who need to report an incident or concern, whether or not damage, injury or a health issue has occurred. There is also a quick, fast track entry for "simple capsize" (but check the definition of that first!).

You may enter the Incident Report System by:

  • Using your British Rowing account to log in to the Incident Reporting System on the left. (If you do not yet have an online account, you can easily sign up for one here.)
  • Using the "Not a British Rowing member, or don't have a British Rowing account?" link to access the Incident Report System as a Non-Member or Member.

You can submit reports anonymously.

Any reports you make when logged in will be visible to you online.

A copy of your report will be sent to the relevant British Rowing staff as well as the Honorary Rowing Safety Advisor, the Chairman of the Rowing Safety Committee, the Club Rowing Safety Advisor (CRSA) of the primary club involved and its Regional Rowing Safety Adviser (RRSA).

In certain circumstances, British Rowing will also send a copy onto Perkins Slade, our British Rowing insurance providers for the purpose of assessing risk in the overall activity.

In the Thames, where the PLA are the Navigation Authority, any reports may be forwarded as required and additional information supplied before an incident can be closed. (Ref

Please remember that these reports are confidential, indeed they are covered by the Data Protection Act. It is possible that your RRSA may contact you to offer assistance. The information that you provide may also be used to produce anonymised advice to others, for example via Safety Alerts or safety reports.

For further information on the Incident Reporting procedure please see Row Safe, Chapter 12.

Thanks again.
