Those of you competing in Newnham Head will no doubt be aware of the
current weather forecast, in particular the high wind speed.
We very much hope that the event will be able to run as planned, but
please keep a close eye on your emails for any updates either directly
from NCBC or via the CUCBC flag status emails.
In general we are able to maintain a green flag in worse conditions on
race days because of the highly controlled traffic circulation and
relatively low density of crews compared to a busy early morning
session. However, this does not mean that we will simply 'hope for the
best' if we believe conditions to be hazardous.
As ever, the final responsibility for deciding whether or not to boat
rests with the each crew/coach. A green flag simply allows you to make
that choice, and if you believe that you are not competent to deal with
the conditions as you find them then you should not boat.
