Wednesday

Notes from the Umpires

  • All crews must marshal on time, there were far too many crews arriving late today and delaying racing due to being out of order. We will not wait for you if you are too late to get to the start.
  • Coxes please check behind you before clearing to see where racing crews are.
  • All crew paddling home should expect to be held below the railway bridge to allow the next division to push off.
  • Crew already above the railway bridge and going home should keep left until past Peter's Posts to allow marshalled boats to push off.
  • Marshalled crews pushing off to the start should keep left until they reach the railway bridge after which they should resume normal navigation.
  • Please keep bank party sizes to a maximum of 4 and take care of where you are cycling. The towpath will get busier as the week progresses and we've already had some accidents today.

Thursday

Notes from the Umpires

Friday

Notes from the Umpires

  • Please remember bank party sizes are strictly limited to 4 cyclists. The towpath will be incredibly busy tomorrow and can be very dangerous if there are too many cyclists. Please take lots of care when cycling and could clubs also ask their spectators to keep clear of the path during racing. All excess bank party fines will be doubled tomorrow.
  • Bank parties must not impede umpires. WIth the busy towpath we need a clear view of the racing.
  • Please marshal on time tomorrow. Any delays in racing will simply mean everyone will be late for BCD.
