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

The forecast for tomorrow (Thursday) morning looks pretty gusty, though if the forecast is correct, it’ll probably fall short of justifying a yellow flag. However, the conditions are probably not going to be suitable for novice coxes with novice crews. Senior crews should be ok, and any relatively competent novice crews with a senior cox might still manage a productive outing, but please ensure your cox and coach have assessed the conditions thoroughly before boating.

Please remember that a green flag is not synonymous with permission to boat, and the responsibility still lies with each crew to make the safe decision based on their abilities.

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