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. Novice crews may boat from 07:30am. The Two Boat Rule came into effect on Monday 14th November and will remain in effect until the end of Michaelmas Term. Each Club is only permitted to have two boats (including IVs and VIIIs, but not counting singles, pairs or tub pairs) on the river at any one time between Lighting Down and 0830hrs on Mondays to Fridays.

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).

Early Morning Marshals

The new Early Morning Marshals' rota for this term has now been updated.

In accordance with Rule 34, the College clubs are required to provide marshals to enforce the early morning noise and traffic restrictions.

Marshals should arrive at their station promptly at lighting down and remain in position until 08:30. They should read the instructions on the website before arriving for duty - Marshals Instructions

Please check the rota very carefully for your club's slots. Clubs will be fined for failing to provide competent marshals.

If you have any queries about marshaling, or if marshals experience problems while on duty (lost equipment or unforeseen circumstances), please do not hesitate to contact the Executive Committee (committee@cucbc.org).

Wildlife Guidance

A reminder of the Wildlife guidance from the Cambridge River Users Group (also found in our Guidance for Coxes and Coaches).

This post will be updated with the location of any nests when they become known.

Weil's Disease Information

The University Safety Office has asked CUCBC to pass on some information regarding Leptospirosis. Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection which can cause mild flu like symptoms, but in rare cases can develop into Weil's Disease, which can be life threatening.

Rowers and Coxes are at risk of contracting Leptospirosis from the River Cam, especially if river water gets in contact with cuts or is ingested. Rowers are advised to use waterproof dressings on cuts wherever possible, avoid swallowing any river water and to use water bottles with sealable lids (to avoid water in the bottom of the boat coming into contact with the lip/opening of the bottle).

If you think you may have contracted Leptospirosis, or want to find more information, the NHS website has more.

Early Morning Marshals

The new Early Morning Marshals' rota for this term has now been updated.

In accordance with Rule 34, the College clubs are required to provide marshals to enforce the early morning noise and traffic restrictions.

Marshals should arrive at their station promptly at lighting down and remain in position until 08:30. All the equipment (bibs, clipboards, record sheets) can be found at LMBC Boat House (just to the left of the front door at the side of the building). Marshals should read the instructions on the website before arriving for duty - Marshals Instructions

Please check the rota very carefully for your club's slots. Clubs will be fined for failing to provide competent marshals.

If you have any queries about marshaling, or if marshals experience problems while on duty (lost equipment or unforeseen circumstances), please do not hesitate to contact the Executive Committee (committee@cucbc.org).
