Early Morning Marshals

The new Early Morning Marshals' rota for this term has now been updated.

In accordance with Rule 34, the College clubs are required to provide marshals to enforce the early morning noise and traffic restrictions.

Marshals should arrive at their station promptly at lighting down and remain in position until 08:30. They should read the instructions on the website before arriving for duty - Marshals Instructions

Please check the rota very carefully for your club's slots. Clubs will be fined for failing to provide competent marshals.

If you have any queries about marshaling, or if marshals experience problems while on duty (lost equipment or unforeseen circumstances), please do not hesitate to contact the Executive Committee (committee@cucbc.org).

The 2015-16 Michell Cup, awarded for the best overall performance on the river during the academic year was awarded to Hughes Hall/Lucy Cavendish.

The 2016 Pegasus Cup, awarded to the best performing club in the May Bumps, was awarded to Corpus Christi.
