Safety Cover in Lyme Bay

Hi All

BIBOA is looking for some additional safety boats to help provide cover in the Lyme Bay area during the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes race on Sunday August 29th.

The race starts at 11am ... with the first boats likely to reach Lyme Bay at approximately 11:45am. There is an hour stopover for refuelling in Torquay, so the last boats will go through between 15:00 and 15:15 latest.

So, boats will need to be available for approximately 3-4 hours.

Course details for the race are on the BIBOA website (www.biboa.com) if you need more information.

There should be a fuel allowance (not sure how much at this point), but if you would be willing to offer your services, please contact either myself of the safety officer for the event, Helen Strickland (helstrickland@AOL.com)

Thanks

Mike

Hi David,

If you send your contact details to myself, then I can ensure you are aksed to cover the Lyme Bay area rather than elsewhere. Please ignore my comment above about Helen ... Tony Lewis is the safety officer ... I must have been having a Blonde day!

Thanks for your interest

Mike

Hi Guys,


All the details for the race itself are now on the BIBOA website (www.biboa.com) and the Cowes Classic website (www.cowesclassic.com).

The organisers will be in touch shortly

The BIBOA website has full race instructions including all the official contact details, so if you have questions, you can contact BPRC directly. Charlie or Jenny are very helpful!

Mike

Thanks

I would just like to thank all those who made the effort to get out to thier positions on the race course for the Cowes Classic weekend - especially those who battled unpleasant conditions on Sunday so that we could go racing and never saw a boat!

Without you the racing would never even be able to start so thank you to all of you!
