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:
- RowKraft Beacon Lights
- Bright Eyes: Bow Light and Stern Light
- Innovative Lighting: Bow Light and Stern Light
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 is helpful too.
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.
