    A minor point on the note on how to steer the Henley course. I guess that it may have been written before the BR rules changed, but the umpire no longer needs to say “Hands down”. If a coxswain is sitting with their hand in the air and doing nothing, the umpire can now go straight to the “Attention”.

    As far as I am aware, the HRR rules never had any mention of the “Hands down” instruction.
