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 forecast for tomorrow morning is very unpleasant. (40+ mph gusts... yay!)

We will be checking the river earlier in the morning, and will update the flag before 11 as conditions develop, but our expectation if the flag to stay yellow into at least mid afternoon. 

1st boats with less experienced rowers or coxes should consider whether they want to go out as well. Permission to boat is not the same as being required to. At no point should a crew boat with either a cox or coach who is unhappy with conditions, and pressure should never be applied to individuals who feel uncomfortable with the conditions.

Sorry. :(
