I have received quite a few safety complaints recently. Please pass this on
to coaches etc in your club if they are not on the coxes list.
Crews travelling *UPSTREAM* have priority at both crossing points. Upstream
means going from Baitsbite lock back towards the boathouses: if in doubt
throw a twig in the river and watch which way it goes.
If you are going downstream and see another crew coming, stop and wait.
There have a been a lot of incidents of crews attempting a quick crossover
ahead of an upstream crew as soon as they see them coming. This normally
ends in both crews crossing to the same side and they end up on a collision
When you crossover you should do so quickly and you should also make your
manoeuvre at the position of the signs that mark the points, not 50+ metres
early as you come out of a corner.
