Dear all,

The Canoe Club event on 24th March is out of term, but as the races
are directly in front of the boathouses, I have exceptionally posted a
closure from 10am until 12.30pm.

Best wishes,

Dear both,

Cambridge Canoe Club will once again be holding the annual Cam Canoe
Marathon on the River Cam. The race will be held on Sunday 24th March
starting from the Canoe Club’s clubhouse on Sheep’s Green, Newnham.

 Most of the activity will be on the upper river from Sheep’s Green up
to Grantchester, from 10.30am until 13.00pm. However, the more
experienced paddlers will be racing down the Backs and onto the lower
river as far as Baits Bite on times between 11.15am and 12.30pm.  In
total there will be about of 60-80 competitors completing that part of
the course.

During the race turning buoys will be placed centre river at:

-          100m downstream of the Green Dragon pub

-          Approximately, 30-50m upstream of Bait's Bite weir.

These will be placed about 10-10:30am and removed when the last
competitor has made the turns.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. If you could disseminate
this information across the rowing clubs it would be greatly

Many thanks for your co-operation.

Yours faithfully

Jonathan Bray
