The flag is Yellow.

Boating is restricted to University crews, first VIIIs, men's crews in the top 2 divisions of the May Bumps and women's crews in the top division of the May Bumps as well as first fours and tub pairs. Members of crews permitted to boat under a Yellow Flag may do so in fours or small boats (i.e. single and double sculls and pairs) with the express permission of the Club Captain and/or Boatman.

Outlook: Extremely strong winds are forecast for tomorrow.  See <http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/ee/cambridge_forecast_weather.html> for details.  Crews are advised to use the river with extreme caution if you crew is allowed to boat under the given flag.

Please also ensure any boats or equipment residing outdoors are firmly tied down.  Also, given the amount of rain today, there will also probably be a reasonable current, so only experienced competent coxes should be on the river.  The final decision to boat lies with each college club.
