As always on this stretch of river, steering a good course is vital. Time can be easily given away by being out of the stream.

Get ahead of the competition by doing your homework and learning the steering from a local expert who knows the river intimately, Martin Haycock.

Get the full, detailed steering guide for your crew sent to your in-box by going to this sign-up page.
Remember to check the course map for the locations of the green and red navigation buoys. Some of these can drift close to the racing line and usually catch out one or two crews.
Best of luck from Rowperfect!
