Heat Management Plan for SIRC
Recognising that Sydney International Regatta Centre (SIRC) is particularly susceptible to high (and sometimes extreme) temperatures during the summer racing season, Rowing New South Wales has established a Heat Management Plan to facilitate rowing competition at SIRC. The Heat Management Plan provides a framework under which RNSW and its regatta managers can take measures (inlcuding the suspension, cancellation or rescheduling of events, and the imposition of restrictions on competition), if they believe that temperatures on the day warrant such measures.
Please refer to the Risk section on the Documents and Policies page for further information.
