Upon completion of the e-learning, you must upload your certificate to your British Rowing Profile. This is done as follows:

1. Log in to the British Rowing membership system
2. On ‘My Profile’ go to ‘Credentials’
3. Click ‘Add Credential’
4. Type ‘Clean Sport’ and select from the available options the credential you are uploading.

Help and FAQs

Attending the event

It is the responsibility of each club/crew to make sure they have everything they need for the event. As the member federation, British Rowing is responsible for ranking entries, ensuring they are members of British Rowing and that they have completed Clean Sport e-learning but not the logistical day to day support for crews entered.

Coastal Rowing Kit

British Rowing do not have a set kit supplier for the World Rowing Coastal Championships. For clubs/crews wishing to purchase kit for the event make sure you are aware of the World Rowing Rules before making any orders.

Coastal rowing requires crew members to display on their racing shirt or equivalent, the three-letter country code and their family name (in Romanised text) in the following manner and format.
