Nic – I have forwarded this to Guin to reply to you offline. Thanks for using Rowperfect and remember to tell us what the answers are!
If you need any more information on Lifejackets then please see the attached Safety Alert, there are more Safety Alerts in the Archive on the British Rowing website. If you follow the links then you will see why we are keen on crotch straps.
I trust that you are using RowSafe 2017 and not an earlier version. You can find this at https://www.britishrowing.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Row-Safe-April-2017.pdf . I checked and there are only two references to flares. One was in section 7.4.1 where they are in the”optional extras” list for launch safety kits. The other was in section 10.2.1 where they are in the “optional extras” list for gigs. I can easily think of circumstances where they should be carried and circumstances where they need not. It all depends on the circumstances. This is why we rely on the risk assessment approach. One size does not fit all.
The one thing you have to remember abut RowSafe is that it is guidance. It is up to each cub to decide what safety provisions are needed based on their risk assessment of the planned activity.
I hope this helps, please let me now if you need anything further.
