Coxes notes

In marshalling area please keep bows straight into the stream

United_Hospitals_Head_Race_start_marshalling_recirculation_before_race_start



When asked to turn please make sure you go into the centre (avoid moving over to the Surrey bank)

Please keep sufficiently above the previous crew to allow them room to turn - the stream will push you into them

Second section crews move up as one group when first section starts to turn

Second section crews go well up Isleworth Ait

During race stay on the starboard aspect of the fairway but on the outside of all the red buoys

Overtaking crews move to centre (when safe to do so), slower crews move to the starboard side of the fairway

If a class V vessel is coming upriver at Kew officials there will call 'line astern' navigation which means no overtaking, keep on the starboard side of the class V vessel
