Wednesday

Notes from the Umpires

  • Bank Parties are strictly limited to 4
  • Crews are expected to row continuously down to the start when there are no practice starts. Crews should not sit stationary for extended periods of time waiting for "a gap” to open and then row off winding it up immediately. The same goes at the Railway Bridge; a small queue is not an excuse to do an illegal start - you will only make the queue worse!
  • Coxes are reminded that they are responsible for observing crews ahead, including looking out for obstructions, and that they must not row into stationary boats at race pace. Coxes failing to conduct their crews in a safe manner may be removed from Bumps for the remainder of the week for particularly serious infractions

Notes from the Umpires

  • A blue inhaler was handed in at control.

  • Bank parties must not get in the way of umpires and must let umpires pass then if they need to do so. 
  • Watch where you are going on the towpath. It will be busy on Saturday. There will be a lot of spectators and it is s public right of way. 
  • Coxes should be aware of what is happening around them, seeing where crews are bumping out ahead and taking a look behind before clearing to see which way racing crews are going. 
  • Clear the river immediately after bumping. Do not celebrate until you are safely pulled in.

  • Everything is two hours earlier on the last day!
