Bob

Your best bet would be to suggest a location and a date to go cruising and see how much interest you get!

This approach has worked well on RIBnet for various parts of the country and seems to be a good way to start a group.

Have fun!

John

This happened on the Thames today!!!!

Just noticed this on the BBC website!

Mass rescue after boats capsize!

Forty people had to be pulled from the River Thames after severe weather struck during a boat race.
At least two people, one with severe hypothermia, have been taken to hospital for treatment.

Lifeboats were called to the 22nd Vesta International Veterans' Head of River Race at around 1300 GMT after vessels took in water and capsized.

About 145 boats were taking part in the race between Putney and Mortlake, in south-west London.

Crews treated

Eric Reynolds, secretary of the Putney-based Vesta Rowing Club which organised the event, said: "It is not unusual for boats to sink. It is part of the sport.

"They took on more water than they had buoyancy."

The police Marine Rescue Service was also called in to help the Royal National Life Boat Institute (RNLI) with the rescue.

Some crew members were taken to a nearby rowing club for treatment, Scotland Yard said.

It is thought those rescued were in their 40s or 50s.

Seems like the weather may have been a little rough on The Thames...
Good thing we weren't there!!!

I know threads drift off topic a bit but this must be about the quickest and most oblique yet.
