Flowplan for craft on the water: With the increasing membership and the congestion on the lake, CLBC members are being asked to please follow the Recreational Activity and Craft Flow Plan. This is particularly important for the rowers and kayakers training early mornings where up to 20 people are using the warm up and main lake. All boats should have lights attached prior to sunrise and after sunset to avoid collision. Signage is attached inside the boatshed and exterior signs will soon be added to the waterfront near the launching pontoons to remind members of the direction they should taking on both lakes while training. Lane numbers are also soon to be added to the start/2000m, 1000m and finish line to also assist craft with direction. (Please note that on race days State Sporting Associations responsible for running the events will possibly have their own flow plan in place).
Basic rules to remember are: Lanes 1-2 (Lane 1 is closest to Tonkin Highway) flow from the start line towards the finishing tower, Lane 3 buffer zone- NO CRAFT, Lanes 4-5 head from finish towards start tower, Lane 6 – buffer zone- NO CRAFT, Lanes 7, 8 head from start line towards finishing tower. Be careful of entry to the main lake at the 850 m mark
