Forthcoming River Closures

Weekend Rowing: All crews may boat at 11:00am on both days. All novice crews must be accompanied by a bank party, and novice crews must have an experienced cox for their first outing.

Early Morning Restrictions: Senior boats only may boat at lighting down. Crews boating within 15' of lighting down must carry white lights visible through 360o. Novice crews may boat from 07:30am, and must be accompanied by a bank party. Novice crews must have an experienced cox for their first outing. The two-boat rule is in place between lighting down and 08:30 until the end of Michaelmas.

Evening Hours are in effect during 17:30-20:00 on weekdays during Easter Full Term for upper boats only. Please see the Evening Rowing page for more information.

Details of forthcoming closures of the river to CUCBC crews are shown below. All are for the river downstream of Chesterton Corner / Green Dragon Footbridge unless stated otherwise. Where an event allows row throughs for Senior Crews, these are defined as crews which may row below Baitsbite lock (i.e first boats and crews in the first two divisions of May Bumps).
