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: Provisional yellow for Monday morning on account of the river already freezing by the boat houses, with overnight temperatures dipping as low as minus three.

n.b. The condition for a red flag is ice more than 1mm thick, two metres from the bank. If you judge this to be the case along the boathouses before the flag is updated, you should not boat.
