Forthcoming River Closures

Weekend Rowing: All crews may boat from 11:00am on both days.

Early Morning Restrictions: All Senior crews may boat at lighting down; crews boating within 15 minutes of lighting down must carry white lights visible through 360o, must row full crew, full slide to Chesterton footbridge, and must not spin before Baitsbite lock. Novice crews may boat from 07:30am.

Evening Hours will be in effect during 17:30-20:00 on weekdays during Easter Full Term for first boat training 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).
