Please see Lee’s email below - it seems our email woes are not yet resolved, and maybe even worse, as it might only be my emails that are getting through. We’re still working on getting to the bottom of why this is the case. Sorry for the trouble…

All other crews may boat 15 minutes after Lighting Down." (15 minute rule: http://www.cucbc.org/handbook/earlies) Do note this is for 1st VIIIs only, and is not affected by position in Lents or Mays.

If this doesn't work, we'll look at bringing the two-boat system in instead; but our hope is that the 15-minute rule is sufficient to give crews more time rowing and less time queueing. Please can you inform EMMs to enforce this from this Thursday, for everyone's benefit.
> Secondly a reminder regarding lights (have solid white lights on stern+bow), traffic (full crew, full slide, spin at lock if pushing off in first 15 minutes) and noise (minimal noise before 0730 upstream of the *railway* bridge; except for emergencies (e.g. capsize, imminent crash, attacking lions).
