Light Your Way

For safety in the Fall season, anyone on the water near or after sunset MUST have lights on their shell. Every shell needs both a red/green bow light and a white stern light.

My personal choice for lights are the RowKraft Beacon Lights. I have used the same set of RowKraft lights for over five years now. The lights are rechargeable and are very, very bright.

There a number of options for lights:

The Bright Eyes lights listed above should be able to be attached to the rigger on the shell.

Some rowers also like to wear a small LED hiking headlamp which could be used in place of a white stern light.

Note, I recommend taking the lights off the shell before washing the shell at the end of the row to avoid getting the lights wet.
