Ely

Under the terms of the CUCBC Constitution, the CUCBC has no regulatory powers over College Clubs when they are using the Ouse at Ely. However, clubs are reminded of the following: The CUWBC Constitution expressly forbids the College womens' Boat Clubs from rowing between the Fish and Duck PH (South of Ely) and the Adelaide Course (North of Ely) without the express permission of the CUWBC President. A CUBC Rule which was re-affirmed in 2001, bans rowing by College crews on the Adelaide course and on the River between Ely and the Fish and Duck PH without the express permission of the CUBC President. Any clubs who do receive permission to row at Ely are reminded:

  • The river is not regulated by the Cam Conservators and other licences may be required.
  • Permission to boat is required from the landowner whose land you are boating from.
  • If using a launch, the BR Safety Code provisions regarding launches must be followed.
