Control vessels will be in place at each end of the course to advise vessel operators of the River closure. An official vessel will be situated at the rear of the competing vessels and its display of a green flag bearing the words ‘Race Finish’ in black letters will mark the completion of the event. Normal navigation can then resume within the Area.
