If you'd like to come up to London I'm organising the Great River Race from Teddington all the way down to Poplar on the 13th of September. I need 40 ish RIBs so all offers greatfully received!
Drop me an email or PM if interested.
I may try and organise another Ribnet Thames Cruise between now and then as well.
They were doing that when I did it in back in 19... er.. well, when I did it.
125 miles canoeing and about 70 or so 'portages' (running with canoe and kit) one of which was about 3/4 mile long, we came up against a lot of the 'who dares wins' brigade and by the time we capsized half a dozen times, broken our steering and got wedged across
the canal in Reading we'd adopted the 'who cares who wins approach'
Thanks for the info re the Thames cruise, probably a couple of weeks early for me but I will definately bear it in mind.
