Course Map

A Note to Coxes, Scullers & Steersmen/women

Going up river
First leave the slips at the time appointed. Depending on the flow it may take a novice crew up to 45 minutes to reach the start. Second, on leaving the slips paddle away with all the crew to clear the slipping area for the next crew. Crews should ensure that numbers are properly mounted. Proceed to the start area without delay. Note that crews not past Menlo Castle ½ hour before the start time will be turned back.

The "Cut", upstream of the stone Monuments, will be buoyed. Keep these to the coxes right, i.e. on bow side going upstream. Crews numbered 1-50 will proceed above the start line and others will be staged within the buoyed area.

After the finish

KEEP TO THE COLLEGE BANK, there are rocks in the shallows at the centre of the river.

Further down, there is another black marker. Keep left of the marker. When you pass this marker you take a sharp right. Do not stop here as the flow is dangerous.

DO NOT STOP IN FRONT OF THE WEIR,
THE FLOW IS STRONG AND VERY DANGEROUS
