Task - Safety Launch 2 (BSC) upstream

Teams of Helpers - Your Team Leader is the Safety Adviser. As well as reporting in to the Helper Coordinator at Monkton Boathouse, please report to your Team Leader when you arrive. If, later, you need help, please contact him or her first.

Task -

Your main area of patrol is upstream of the mid-course bridge. Please take over at the bridge, from the lower safety boat to follow the last crew up to the start, before following the last crew down from there to the bridge.

One race official may possibly have a VHF radio, but we will give you a non-VHF 1 which links in with the network used by the race. Please maintain low speed on the water unless there is an emergency because rowing boats are easily disturbed and other river users are, as you know, sometimes very sensitive.
