  • Fulham Football Ground Works

    Author: Neil Pickford | Date: 24th June 2019

    See this NTM issued by the PLA, regarding works to the riverside stand at Fulham FC.

    Once work commences there will be two warning buoys to alert river users to the works. The buoys should be installed this week (24th June) with work scheduled to start after 8th July. See here for a presentation regarding the works.

    A Social Media group will be setup to allow coaches to know when barge movements will take place.

    Updated Tideway Code

    Author: Neil Pickford | Date: 12th June 2019

    The PLA has updated the Tideway Code and is essential reading for steers and coxswains but all active members should have a good understanding. 

    This new edition combines the Rowing Code (Third edition 2015) with the Paddling Code (First edition 2017) and there are also new wall charts for both the upper an lower Tideway Code areas.

    See the Safety and Navigation section for full details

  • River issues this weekend

    Author: Neil Pickford | Date: 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.
