Dear all,

The towpath isn’t currently snowy or icy, but it is extremely wet and muddy. In addition, it looks like it’s going to keep raining for most of the day. Combine that with the sub-zero wind-chill temperatures and sitting stationary in a boat, and people could be getting very cold. Please ensure all crews and bank parties have sufficient warm, dry kit with them, and ideally some way of staying dry / keeping their spare kit dry for after the race.

Best wishes,

> 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 bumped.
> • > 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.
