Punting at Wolfson
In order to be granted permission to punt you must complete a form available below or from the Lodge.
The Common Room Administrator will check you have done the online boathouse tour within the past 4 years (see below), and then notify the Lodge that you have permission to punt this season. Punts are bookable in 3 hour slots and via the Lodge - in person only and not by telephone. For an up-to-date set of Punt Rules see the PDF below and please read them before you take out a punt.
A boathouse tour must be taken every 4 years to familiarise you with how it all work and thanks to the fantastic work of a past Admiral, Phil Davis, this tour takes place on the web, so you needn't move from your computer!
For further reading, Robert Pitkethly has written a useful guide (see below PDF How to Punt).
