    is reversed When the tide comes up the river may flow in the opposite direction to normal Since it is safer to land upstream in this situation club rules state that crews should land in the opposite direction to normal Navigating corners may pose a challenge when the flow direction is reversed due to steerspersons being used to navigating in a normal flow direction Debris During a high tide debris may come upstream from Netham Weir for example branches logs wood with nails sticking out etc These can easily rip a fin out or put a hole in the bows If you encounter this sort of debris you should immediately curtail your outing in order to avoid damage Best plan to be downstream of the club when the stream turns so as not to get stranded upstream by debris coming up past the club Navigation in a strong stream A strong stream could be caused by heavy rainfall or a tide When travelling with the strong stream you will move a lot faster than normal Just as when driving your stopping distance will be increased and your cornering ability reduced When travelling against the strong stream the boat can get pushed across the river very quickly especially when taking a corner Assess whether the steersperson is competent for the conditions Updates from Twitter Tweets about ArielAvon Real time river level information Environment Agency River Levels this shows the river level from an automated measurement station below Netham Weir This is usually updated several times a day When you see spikes these are high tides This data is available on a Twitter feed riverlevel 0439 Based on observations on 11 01 2014 when the river is flowing steadily approx 0 6m at Netham Weir top of the black tiles at Ariel There is another station at Keynsham above the Hanham weir Link Predicting river levels Rainfall Any heavy rain in the Bristol Avon Basin may cause the river level to rise approximately 12 hours later and it may not return to normal for 2 3 days After heavy rain the catchment will be saturated so any further heavy rain will certainly cause the river to rise again After extended periods of rain flooding the river will take several weeks to return to normal Environment Agency Flood Warnings for the Lower Avon Area They keep track of the amount of rainfall in the last 24 hours and the forecast for the next 24 hours and indicate quite accurately what may be coming down the river in the near future Tides If there is a high tide above about 12 5 metres this will normally cause the river to rise at the club However bear in mind that the location of a high or low pressure centre in the Atlantic can affect the sea level in the Bristol Channel which means under some weather conditions the actual level can deviate from the predictions If the river is already swollen due to rainfall this
