To promote the sport of rowing, our club and our sponsors occasionally take photographs of rowers in the boats or on land. All images are vetted before being published. These images may be used for print media and on social networks. Your signature below confirms that we may use your image unless specifically instructed not to do so in the comments area below.


I have read, understood and completed the above questionnaire and acknowledge that there are risks and dangers inherent in rowing and physical exercise and duly undertake the activity at my own risk.
