River issues this weekend

20th September 2018

This Sunday (23rd) there is a Barrier closure between 10am and 5pm. This means the flow on the river may become slack. May I remind all clubs to navigate according to what the water flow is doing and not according to the tide tables. Also be aware about rowing on slack water, page 36 of the Tideway Code.

The Tideway Foreshore is taking place on Sunday as well. Please be considerate when planning your rowing outings.

The Met Office have a Yellow Warning for wind between 18:00 Thu 20th and 09:00 Fri 21st and between 09:00 Sun 23rd and 09:00 Mon 24th. Please be careful when deciding which crews should go out and consider using sheltered reaches.

The strong winds have already bought down some large branches which are now in the river. I was made aware of one this morning between the Mile Post and Harrods. If you do see any large branches that have come down please notify myself or the PLA on VTS so that the obstruction can be removed.
