Dear All,

Well done on *mostly *following the plan yesterday. There were obviously
issues outside of our control, but it was certainly smoother than Wednesday.

The points that need reiterating are as such:

   - Crews on the reach moving upstream must stop BEFORE the Railway Bridge
   to allow marshalling crews to go down. Try to pre-empt the marshals by
   stopping in good time.
   - Crews pushing off should keep left until the crossover point, which is
   just UPSTREAM of the Railway Bridge - too many crews were keeping left till
   halfway down the reach yesterday.
   - Crews coming down from the boathouses to marshal must cross over at
   Peter's posts and begin left hand navigation before parking. There may be
   crews coming upstream who you are likely to meet. Crews moving upstream
   have priority at Peter's Posts, so wait for them next to Stourbridge common.
   - Any crew arriving late to marshal must not enter the racing course
   during racing, park on Stourbridge common upstream of the finish and await
   marshal's instructions.

Here are the instructions again in handy diagram form
please check that you understand and hopefully today will go even more

We understand that the change to the status quo is disruptive, but we
believe this minimises the potential for delays if everyone follows the

Good luck for today and tomorrow,


(Captains please pass this along to all relevant persons).
