June Eights' Regatta

A one-off side-by-side Regatta held on the Long reach, to replace the cancelled 2021 May Bumps.

The Getting on Race will run on Sunday 20th June.

The Regatta will run from Monday to Thursday 21st-24th June.

Further information will be posted on the June Eights' Regatta page as it is confirmed.

Wildlife Guidance

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

The cygnets that were formerly nesting on Plough Reach have hatched, and are now out and about between Ditton corner and First Post Reach. Coxes and steerspersons should exercise additional caution in this area to avoid getting too close to them.

There is a second nest just downstream of the A14 bridge. They seem to still be nesting, but the male can be a little defensive if crews linger too close to the nest.

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.

For 2021 Easter Full Term, Evening Hours are in effect during 17:30-20:00 on weekdays for Senior boats only. Novice crews are not allowed below Chesterton during this time. Please see the Evening Rowing page for more information about previous years' restrictions.

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).

University IVs 2018

The University IVs 2018 will run from Monday 22nd October to Friday 26th October. Entries will open shortly after the captains' meeting, and will close on Friday 12th October. Entries must be made through college captains' CUCBC accounts, and further information will be disseminated through captains' CUCBC email addresses, so please ensure these are handed over from last year's captains where necessary. All competing crews will be expected to provide marshals to ensure the safe running of the regatta.

CUCBC Privacy Policy

The CUCBC privacy policy has been updated in light of recent changes to legislation. The latest version can be found here.

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).

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.

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
