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: The gates at BaitsBite are now at 46.9% and 47.5%, i.e. wider than earlier today. The landing stage below the lock is out of use and crews should refrain from attempting to boat from it while it remains submerged. All crews should spin upstream of the spinning sign. Two crews are reported as having been swept downstream into the boom area due to spinning too far down: there is danger of capsize on the boom so you must spin before the sign. 

As visibility is poor, crews should be boating with lights.
