Based on current conditions, the four oar rule is no longer in effect starting today, 20 March 2022. Per the PBC Safe Boating Recommendations, the conditions that must be met for winter rowing rules to be lifted are that the water temperature must be above 50F for four days in a row (this condition was met yesterday) accompanied by prospects for high and low ambient temperature of 60F and 40F, respectively.

Additionally, the fleet of club singles and pairs are no longer grounded.

As a reminder to all rowers: as we return to the river, following the generally accepted traffic pattern shown on the Potomac River Safety Committee's website will be the best way to ensure all members minimize the risk of collision during our rows. Please be sure to check your point often to visually locate moving and fixed hazards to navigation and ensure you're on the correct side of the river.
