Dear All,

I for one think it would be a good idea to come up with a set of principles covering use of the river at Ely by CUCBC-afiliated clubs (and perhaps for all off-Cam training during term time) as soon as possible - is anyone else with me? I am surprised that it’s not already regulated.

The CUCBC constitution refers to the river between Jesus Green and Bottisham Locks. If the captains and CU presidents were to come to agreement of a set of principles covering use of the river at Ely the agreed rules could be included as an appendix to the Handbook.
