Special notice (Posted 18.5.17)
There is a large crane moored at the PLA moorings.

It is unlikely that this will be moved before the weekend. It is unlikely that crews will be able to pass between the mooring and the wooden post as usual ('red' route shown below).
It is likely that crews will be able to pass between the wooden post and the Middlesex bank with care for the first division each day ('yellow' route shown below) - but beware of the big log stuck on the wooden post (see main page for division times) but it is probably unlikely that any crew will be able to pass behind the post for the subsequent divisions. Please follow the marshal's instructions at this point and take great care. It will probably be necessary to move carefully out in front of the moored crane to move round it for the second and third divisions ('blue' route shown below). 
Please note that this applies to all oared boats, not just competitors.

External crews - we only have the revised navigation arrangements in place for the marshalling phase and the actual race (there is a considerable time between each race when there are no crews there and the navigation reverts to normal)
If you have been asked to take the revised crossing at Brentford Lock by the race official stationed by the moored boat with the black and white arros; then there will be a further official at the PLA mooring to assist your safe passage in this area. Our apologies for this - the crane was unexpected.


It is the responsibility of coxes to have read and understood these diagrams and the coxes' notes.

It is the responsibility of individual club captains to ensure that all their coxes have accessed this information.

Special message to non-competing crews
ALL oared boats (not just competitors) need to follow the revised crossing arrangement going upstream
See PLA events calender: 

The revised crossing arrangements are in force for the marshalling and each race; between races when there are no crews present the rules revert to normal. 
Please follow officials' advice (when present). We will have officials at the revised crossing and the PLA mooring - see left hand box
