Dear all,

As a result of the W3 & M3 divisions being cancelled, the first set of
Bumps Marshals (12:50-14:20) for today are no longer required. The second
(14:10-15:40) and third sets (15:30-17:00) should expect to turn up as
normal unless they hear otherwise.

Best wishes,

> Initial inspection this morning confirms that the river is not frozen,

> from early afternoon. At this stage, therefore, we are CANCELLING W3/M3 for

> late as we can following further inspection late morning/lunchtime. We will

> be limited to a maximum of 2, preferably 1, cyclists (any others who get to
> the start may only cycle back on the towpath AFTER the divsion has raced).
> We would also emphasise that racing crews and coxes should remind
> themselves very carefully about the safety aspects of bumping itself, and
> in the circumstances be prepared to use common sense to acknowledge
> inevitable bumps as early as possible, to help with subsequent river
> clearing.
> Should racing of these divisions go ahead, W2 will start at 1440, and the
> remaining divisions every 40 mins thereafter. Please can all crews be sure
> to marshall well on time (not least this will allow us to start each
> division as soon as we can when we have you all on the start, rather than
> havig to wait for sometimes several minutes with the higher divisions).
> Please also remember and apply the general advice about bringing and
> wearing when necessary dry warm clothing, hats, gloves.
> Thanks, and sorry for the frustration all this must be causing.
