N.B. Where the Flag permits a given crew to boat (i.e. green or yellow flag), the final decision lies with the cox and coach as to whether that crew is able to handle the conditions and thus whether boating is appropriate.

Flag Outlook

Although the flag is currently green- Please use common sense when boating in the current breezy conditions. Assess your crews ability to handle the wind. If necessary put in an experienced cox if the crew is novice. The weather is due to deteriorate through the week. Colder weather is moving in. Make sure crews are prepared and wearing adequate warm clothing.

The current Flag status can be accessed on a WAP phone (http://m.cucbc.org/).
