DMU Rowing Swim Test and Capsize Drill

DMU Rowing Swim Test and Capsize Drill

This is the annual, compulsory swim test for all members both current and prospective. Anyone who wishes to row must be able to:

Swim 50m in light clothing
Tread water for two minutes
Swim underwater for five metres

We will also carry out a capsize drill in the safe pool environment, teaching members how to get back in to a boat which has turned upside down.

No-one will be allowed to use DMU Rowing boats until they have completed the swim test!
