Dear all,
The results of today’s racing are available here: http://www.cucbc.org/mays

*Notes from the Umpires*

   - Practise starts at the Plough should follow normal navigation - i.e.
   you should cross at the Plough and do your start on the towpath side. This
   is important as we often have other river traffic heading upstream between
   - After bumping, coxes please take a moment to consider where you will
   clear to.
      - Take a look behind you to see which side chasing crews are on
      - Be decisive, once you've picked where you're going, give clear
      instructions to achieve it as quickly as possible
      - Clear to the most suitable part of the bank - this may not be the
      closest part of the bank - sometimes it is worth going a bit
further to get
      to a safer position, especially if you have space behind you.
      - Clearing on top of another crew is very rarely that most suitable
      part of the bank
   - A cox has been disqualified and a penalty bump awarded against their
   crew for rowing into a stationary boat at race pace. This is an extremely
   dangerous thing to do and will be santioned accordingly.
   - Once you have cleared, please keep your boat (and blades) under
   control, and do not allow your bows or stern to drift into the racing line.
   - Follow normal navigation when rowing home.
   - Spectators may not run alongside racing crews - anyone doing so will
   be counted as an extra cycling bank party and lead to fines for excessive
   bank party.
   - An iSolem white bike light has been handed in at control, please
   collect by Saturday if it is yours.
