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: The flag will remain yellow due to the current high stream and flood conditions. All crews should be aware of the risks and consider carefully whether to boat.

Any crews boating should spin early, upstream of the spinning sign at Baitsbite to avoid the risk of being drawn onto the weir. Please be aware of the the severe danger that the boom and weir present in these conditions.

No crews should try to boat from the pontoon over the lock in the event that it is submerged by floodwaters.
