The Flag is set by the CUCBC Executive Committee to instruct as to which crews may boat given the current river conditions (wind, stream, fog etc.).

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

While the river level has fallen substantially since yesterday, the stream remains substantial, although not sufficient to warrant a yellow flag.

HOWEVER, it is the responsibility of EVERY crew to make their own risk assessments based on their own confidence and experience on water. Just because the flag does not preclude you from boating, it does not mean it is safe for you to do so. A green flag does not mean you have to go out.

Please ensure you stay a good distance from the weir at Baits Bite; parallel spinning there this morning is not wise.

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