N.B. Where the Flag permits a given crew to boat (i.e. green or yellow flag), the final decision lies with the cox and coach as to whether that crew is able to handle the conditions and thus whether boating is appropriate.

Flag Outlook

Crews training during the long vacation are reminded to carry out an appropriate assessment of the weather and river conditions before they boat. River closures will be updated periodically throughout the summer so please check before planning outings.

The current Flag status can be accessed on a WAP phone (http://m.cucbc.org/).
