A helper has been appointed to chivvy crews in the field to ensure that they launch on time.

Control commission should not hold up the flow of boats.

Raft marshals will be in place.

Sometimes the rafts get clogged up with oars these should be stacked in the racks provided. In the past there has been a problem with spectators, but now only competitors and officials are permitted in front of the boathouse and at the rafts. Please help to keep the area clear.

Narrow boats sometimes disrupt flow of the race. Please use tact and persuasion when dealing with narrow boats. Try to get them to wait for suitable gaps. If there is a problem, transmit the information to the coordinating umpire and radio hub. They will keep the start informed.

It may be possible for narrow boats to go up as far as the bridge, wait there until after a race and then go up from the bridge to the top.
