 Dear all,

The results of today’s racing are now available here:

Notes from the Umpires

   - Coxes must keep an eye on what's going on more than one boat in front
   of them; having a rough idea of what's going on behind is also a good idea,
   especially when deciding which side to clear to after bumping/being bumped.
   - Bank parties are strictly limited to four cyclists. Bank parties are
   responsible for ensuring other cyclists do not join their crews.
   - If your crew have caught a boat stopping crab, and the boat behind is
   very close, coxes can and should concede early to help ensure the boat
   behind hold it up early. Of course, the cox of the crew behind should be
   holding it up anyway to avoid a collision with a stationary crew.
   - Bank parties must not tell other crews to concede. Further
   infringements will result in heavy fining and removal from the towpath.
   - Coxes should listen for instructions from the bank after bumping/being
   - Crews should be back in boats by the time the previous division is
   racing past them.
   - Crews which bump out before the Railway Bridge must stop on the Reach
   and pull in to the towpath side until the next division has rowed past.
   - Crews are encouraged to row down to the start much faster as we are
   losing time even without rerows.
