Rules of the river

Stay within the main river channel and follow all directional arrows. If you navigate away from the marked channel you risk running aground and damaging the boat.

Steer on the right hand side where it is safe and practical. Remember even when you have right of way it remains your responsibility to avoid collision.

Avoid turning your boat near bridges, bends and locks. Do not turn across the bows of oncoming boats; wait until it is safe.

Near bridges or sharp bends, boats going upstream must give way to boats coming downstream.

Always take care when overtaking and keep clear of other boats.

Keep a sharp look out at all times for any hazards, taking action when necessary. If in doubt, slow down or STOP.

Respect warning signs. It is dangerous and illegal to interfere with weir gates and sluices.
