The UHBC regatta season is perversely held in the winter months; in a bid to fit in with the academic calender.
There are two events organised by UHBC and a third organised by ULBC; all three events have the same arrangements.

Captains must ensure that they only enter competent crews and that their crews are properly prepared for the race.  Captains must ensure that their crews must follow the standards for safety set out on the British Rowing Guide to Good Practice in Rowing, and particularly the requirement at section 2.1 to wear personal floatation devices where competitors cannot demonstrate the ability to meet the swimming standard or there is a medical problem which presents a risk that the competitor may become unconscious or immobile. The weather in November, December and January can be wet and cold!

 The time of low water is NOT the same as that at which the stream changes from ebb to flood (the stream usually changes AFTER low water and the delay increases with excess land water (fluvial flow). Likewise the time of high water may FOLLOW the change from flood to ebb in situations where there is excess land water).
