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: Pre-emprive yellow flag based on high probability of ice on the river in the morning. There is a high probability that there will be ice beyond Ditton Corner (and also a chance, but less likely) of ice on the Long Reach. CREWS SHOUD NOT PROCEED BEYOND THE LONG REACH UNLESS THEIR COACHES HAVE CHECKED THAT THE RIVER IS TOTALLY CLEAR OF ICE AROUND DITTON CORNER.
All coxes must proceed with caution (i.e. it may not be a good idea to practice a race-piece through ice) and if you encounter significant ice, turn back rather than proceeding through it.
