I've volunteered to enter the Great River Race
in September as part of a team raising money for the The River Thames Boat Project
One minor hurdle that we need to overcome is the loan of a suitable boat. Does anyone here have access to anything that we could borrow? We need a rowing boat, ideally big enough for 8-9 people although something smaller might be OK.
Any traditional boat, or traditional-style replica, powered by a minimum of four oars, or paddles, can enter. Sliding seats and riggers are not allowed. In addition to the rowers or paddlers, each boat must carry a cox and a separate passenger. Even an ASC would do at a pinch if we've got anyone with good sea cadet connection!
If you can help, please let me know. If anyone feels like joining the team, there may be places available too.
