Running a report that locals are not being given a fair chance to tender for Olympic work and will also be prevented from plying their day to day trade during.

Yes the olympic organisation has asked for companies that own 5 or more craft to bid for the Weymouth opportuniies as shown in other forum. The local fishing and charter boats are generally all owned as single boat operators so they feel they re being excluded from the bidding process. The Olympic committee has said they can take bids from groups but this is not clear on their site and on the bidding forum.
There are some companies with 5 or more craft but they cannot supply the needs (150 ribs) of the olympics so if it balances out everyone with the skills and boats should be eligible.

This is one of the questions one is asked if you go into a bidding process

""Are you a Commercial Charter company that owns more than five (5) Motor Boats (not including Sailing Yachts) that are coded, certified and available for charter as the dates detailed? Note: Owned is defined as; The company actually owns the boats and does not charter on behalf of a third party. Proof of ownership in the form of a sales invoice will be required at tender stage.""

Clearly the fishing charter boats are great for mark laying and carrying officals etc. When you look at the other forum where it lays out craft required it is a big ask for any one outlet
Summary of requirements by Boat Type; (An indication of size is given boats will need to be as close as possible to this size)
RIB 5.5m - 6.0m
RIB 7.0m - 8.0m
RIB 8.5m - 9.0m (with and without cabin)
Finish Boats 8m - 9m Catamaran platform or similar
Press Written 12m - 15m Motor Yacht or similar for 10 passengers + crew"

i don't see how the bbc south knows what's going on as they haven't hired any boats yet, i believe the olympic committee are purchasing some specific boats for a specific purpose but everything else is still wide open

I wish. we put together fleets for events but we sub contract RIBs to match, as we said not many own that many as receipts are needed on their forum which is why Weymouth charter skippers were upset.

Interestingly alongside the Olympics are the broadcasting side who are sending out their needs this week also, that will be 10-15 ribs and 4 or 5 hard boats. Plenty of tenders being placed into the open and some companies will have a good start

Are the broadcasting boats also going to be chartered? Are they going to be posted on the CompeteFor site? It would be nice to sell some new boats for the Olympics!

This is seperate to the competeFor site as I took a call about tendering for this and stated I was already on their site but they said this was a different application and are looking for these boats for all filming/photography I think, (have not seen tender papers yet). We also discussed new boats as well as those already working and their reply was they would consider new boats and then helms would be needed. I believe this will need to include higher insurance costings and giro platforms for the cameras. So awaiting updates some time in next week. Unsure if they picked me from CompeteFor website as you can access those or whether this was a cold call.
