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. The Environment Agency have issued a Flood Alert for the lower river. Tomorrow morning may bring both flooding around the boathouses and significant stream/flow. Should the flag remain yellow, we would like to remind coxes of senior crews that high flow will push them into the outside of corners, and downstream whilst otherwise stationary/spinning. Please leave significant gaps between boats, and spin well above Baitsbite Lock. Also note that holding position will require taking strokes/backing down, and that keeping the upstream end of the boat pointing in towards the bank is advised.
