As the swans on the Cam have begun nesting, a reminder of the Wildlife guidance from the Cambridge River Users Group (also found in our Guidance for Coxes and Coaches).
Currently, the known nests are on the non-towpath side of Ditton Corner by the boat shed, on the non-towpath side of First Post Corner, and in a similar location to last year near Horningsea, downstream of Baitsbite Lock.
The provisional start order is now available. Details of the Getting-On Race will be announced in due course.
The Small Boats Regatta 2016 will took place on Tuesday 19th April. Our thanks to all those who took part and congratulations to the winners.

The University Safety Office has asked CUCBC to pass on some information regarding Leptospirosis. Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection which can cause mild flu like symptoms, but in rare cases can develop into Weil's Disease, which can be life threatening.
Rowers and Coxes are at risk of contracting Leptospirosis from the River Cam, especially if river water gets in contact with cuts or is ingested. Rowers are advised to use waterproof dressings on cuts wherever possible, avoid swallowing any river water and to use water bottles with sealable lids (to avoid water in the bottom of the boat coming into contact with the lip/opening of the bottle).
If you think you may have contracted Leptospirosis, or want to find more information, the NHS website has more.
