Pikey you summed it up well, great day, great way to see the Thames with like minded boaters.

However although the race didn't have any dramas we did get involved with a rescue on the way back in the non tidal part of the Thames ! Had to pull a man and his dog out of the water who had been stuck for about half an hour with water up to his chest whilst holding his 9 stone bull dog ! All ended ok but the RIB was covered in mud and dog hairs !
Well we did say hello sort of

Great day on the water, I was there and seemed like a great atmosphere, really good to see so many boats and just a little bit busy!!
I bet the air was blue in many clipper cabins wheel house!!

Putney was mayhem for launching and parking, but the usual numpty not aware of the tides was the usual source of amusement!!

It was a great day, 1st time for me but certainly enjoyed every minute. Still recovering from lack of sleep!

The early morning cruise upto masthouse pier was pretty special the sight of all the ribs was as good as the London backdrop...

Evening all,

Thank you all for joining us out on the River on Saturday. I'm pleased to hear you had a good time and the pictures are looking pretty good as well!!

So thanks once again and hopefully we'll see you on the water again soon.

Many thanks,

Chris

The impact of the GRR is really special. Our sea scouts had 4 youth teams and an adult crew - what they achieved by completing the course is amazing - it gives them real confidence and an amazing test if their seamanship - so on their behalf ;thanks to everyone who helped keep them safe.

Rich
