    Top 3 accidents when rowing in multi-person boats


    Just like rowing on your own, rowing in multi-person boats exposes you to several potential risks. Here are some of the most common risks you may have to face.

    Top 3 accidents when rowing in multi-person boats

    The most common accidents when rowing in multi-person boats are:

    • Injuries by slips, trips and falls
    • Injuries by capsizing
    • Injuries by collisions with other watercraft, banks or rocks

    Causes of multi-person boat accidents

    Injuries by tripping, slipping and falling when rowing in multi-person boats are often caused by people cluttering access paths to boats or unsafe stacking of equipment in boats.

    Capsizing and boating accidents involving collisions are often caused by:

    • Excessive waves and washes created by rowers falling out of rhythm, which in turn makes rowing conditions difficult and could cause the boat to drift into other craft’s path or banks and rocks
    • Inexperienced rowers getting oars in a tangle
    • People assigned to look out for potential hazards not paying attention
    • Other boaters not paying attention, making mistakes or acting irresponsibly

    If you sustained an injury while rowing in multi-person boats, you may qualify for rowing accident compensation if:
