    Survivor guide: Rowing

    Few activities combine a strenuous, healthy workout with fascinating exploration as well as rowing. Particularly when on holiday, it is the perfect way to enjoy a unique perspective on your new surroundings.

    Like many water-sports, however, it is also an activity fraught with danger. Usually, when water is involved, the threat of an accident, on holiday and the subsequent need to claim for travel accident compensation, is a constant, looming presence.

    Avoiding accidents on holiday while rowing

    Fortunately, there are numerous things you can do to ensure your safety and limit both the likelihood and severity of suffering injuries on holiday. Consider the following:

    Who should I hire my boat and equipment from?

    You may need to do a little research and scouting around, but this is a small price to pay for safety and peace of mind. The best places will not only provide you with the very best equipment, but also offer useful advice in terms of currents, places to be wary of and anything else that can help avoid a holiday accident.

    What are the safety non-negotiables?

    1. Life-jacket: this is absolutely essential for almost all forms of water activity. Even if you are not planning to travel out of your depth or far from shore, should a holiday accident occur, this piece of kit can quite simply be the difference between life and death.
    2. Safety in numbers: It is strongly advisable that you don’t head out on an exploration alone, particularly for the first time. Due to being on the water, if you do suffer a travelling injury it could be some time before help arrives. At the very least you should tell someone on land where you are going and what time you expect to be back.
    3. Supplies: Having sufficient food and drink is vital not only because rowing is a hard, hunger-building exercise, but also because you may need something to keep you going whilst awaiting rescue following a holiday accident.
    4. Other equipment: items such as sunscreen, hats, compass etc can all help ensure your adventure lives long in the memory for all the right reasons.

    If you do suffer an accident on holiday, and find yourself needing to make a claim for holiday accident compensation, then Accident Advice Helpline can offer professional guidance throughout the whole of the process.
