The following rule will be in place from Monday, 25th January, 2010 until Saturday, 27th February, 2010 inclusive. It was decided to be introduced during the Captains' Meeting of 21st January.
"That for the 10 minutes following lighting down, no boat will be permitted to be on the water, save for college first VIII's and university crews."
(As it is now after 27th February, this rule is no longer in force.)
The following guidelines for the use of the yellow and red flags have been produced by the CUCBC Safety Advisor, Dr Tom Davies.
A yellow flag will be set at 22.00 hours in preparation for the following morning if, based on the Meteorological Office Cambridge forecast:
At lighting down minus 30 minutes or 06.00 hours the yellow flag will be confirmed for two hours or lowered. There will be no strict criteria for this as the decision will be taken based on personal observation of conditions at the river. However, suggested guidelines are that the flag should continue to be raised if:
A red flag will be raised if conditions are unrowable, such as completely frozen or if the water level has risen 1.5 metres or more. Discretion will be exercised when the water level is between 30cm and 1.5m above normal.
