The Great River Race - Saturday 8 September 2007

The Great River Race- 8th September 2007

"Less po-faced than the Oxbridge race and much more colourful" - Time Out (No. 18 in their ‘101 Things To Do Before You Leave London’ feature)

The Great River Race is a 22 mile rowing race from Richmond upon Thames to Greenwich. Its 'the London Marathon' on water and this year Northern Exposure Rescue is very proud to have been asked to help arrange and manage the safety fleet for the 2007 Race.

We have sent a letter out to all the crews that took part last year but we have been asked to ensure this years fleet has more 4m + safety boats. We are well on our way to getting 40 safety boats for the day but we still need some more.

So we were hoping the good people of RIBnet would be interested in helping out us reaching that magic number of 40 and come and give us a hand!

We have to point out this is a very challenging patch of water and we have agreed a set of minumum standards with the Port of London Authority for safety boats;

1) Cox with RYA safetyboat tickets
2) Boats with a LOA greater than 4m
3) 25 watt VHF + Licences
4) Previous experience of navigating on the River Thames and doing safety cover.
5) Ability to attend a briefing in London a nearer the time

In return for you time we can cover reasonable fuel costs for your boat and give you a day out on the most spectacular patch of water in the UK.

If you meet this minimum criteria and you would like to take part please drop me a quick PM for more information.

Alternatively the event website is http://www.greatriverrace.co.uk

Hope to hear from lots of you soon!!!

Chris

It all seemed to go very well Chris...No doubt you are pleased as it's a huge event to provide safety cover for.

I heard over the vhf that the class 5 ships, Henley and Viscount got rather too close and they both collided wth a RIB and a competing boat somewhere near Battersea Reach!

Those two are big vessels, no damage I hope.

No damage but the HM had a few strong words with them.

All in all we had three dragon boats capsize and one girl with a hurt back who decided after demanding and ambulance that she wasn't that hurt at all. Not a bad job really.

Thanks for your help, we can't make the day happen without the help from volunteers.

If you send your expenses claim to me along with your flags, I'll get payment authorised asap.

Chris, no need for expenses as very little fuel used with engine ticking over keeping stationary against the tide.

I shall send the flags back soon
