At North Berwick Rowing Club we require that every outing has on the boat a member who is a Competent Cox. That need not be the person holding the tiller, who may well be a novice cox. In fact some people have no desire to be anything other than a novice cox, which is absolutely fine!

The definition of what it means to be a Competent Cox at NBRC is here.

We would like to encourage all members to have a go at coxing (even if they stay as a novice cox), and do need to develop Competent Coxes so that we are not too dependant on a small group of people.

The Members Directory shows who is currently a Competent Cox. To have your status changed please contact the club Convenor, or drop an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
