On 3 Mar 2018 10:25, "'PETER CONVEY' via committee" <committee at cucbc.org>
> Dear all
> with massive thanks to all involved again, towpath clearance is now almost
> complete, and we confirm that racing will take place as planned today for
> all divisions. The first race will be at 1240, and crews for that division
> should aim to be on their stations by 10 mintutes before that (1230), which
> will we hope enable us to complete the 'split' division without delaying
> the subsequent division.
> A couple of reminders:
> please can all crews marshall promptly for their divisions during the day.
> As yesterday, we aim to start each divsion as soon as practicable after all
> crews are on station, and to do so we need to know the next division is
> marshalled on time.
> It being Saturday, as well with the continuiing cold (but improved)
> conditions, we will not be considering rerows today (unless, possibly, we
> had to restart almost an entire division after a problem right at the start)
> We will provisionally return to a bank part size of a MAXIMUM of four
> cycles, but will monitor how well this works in the early divisions. Be
> aware that, whatever the bank party size permitted, any 'extra' cyclists
> MUST NOT cycle anywhere in the division and can only follow up the towpath
> at the end behind all racing crews. Infringements of this will be severely
> penalised as it is very clear this continues to be a safety issue in the
> current conditions.
> Please be aware that, although thaw is now happening, many roads and
> pavements, as well as boat house hards, may still be very icy, so take
> great care when coming to either boathouses or the river. And, finally,
> again wear and carry appropriate warm clothing.
