2014 Great River Race - Volunteers sought

We are looking for volunteers to help support this years Great River Race on the River Thames on the 27th of September.

The Great River Race, London's River Marathon, is a spectacular boat race up the River Thames that attracts over 370 boats from all over the globe and appeals to every level of competitor from those who enjoy fun, fancy dress and charity stunts, to serious sportsmen and women who are there to win. A great fun day out for competitors spectators and safety crews alike.

We are looking for up to 35 volunteer safety boats to support this charitable event with most coming from the membership of Northern Exposure Rescue but with it being such a big event, we could really do with some additional boats and we're hoping that the 'power of Ribnet' will help us out once again.

Unfortunately we can't pay anybody but we will reimburse you for your expenses getting your boat to London, cover your boat fuel and oil, provide camping on the Friday and Saturday, launch site (in West London), breakfast on the day and a spectacular day on the Thames with like minded boat owners. It is a very full day and you'll probably cover something like 50 miles. A full safety fleet handbook will be provided and there will be a pre-race briefing on the day which everybody needs to attend.

You must have some experience such as an RYA Powerboat level 2 or Safetyboat Certificate and have a low freeboard boat such as a rib or dory with a reasonable inventory of safety kit.

If you are interested please fill out the contact form here: 2014 Great River Race 27 September 2014. If you'd like further information please email chris@northernexposurerescue.org.uk

Many thanks,

Chris

The only trouble is the tow car .... Boris has banned the Defender!

Assuming we use the same site, then it will be near the finish line in Petersham Meadows at Petersham and Ham Sea Scouts.
