Hi, thanks for getting back to me.
We currently have around 60 members and provide opportunities for people aged 6 - 18 to go kayaking, canoeing, sailing and rowing on the River Thames near Molesey Lock.
After using an ancient fibreglass Dory for some years, it was necessary to upgrade our safety boat to something a bit more reliable and 'seaworthy'. We went with a Rigiflex Newmatic 400 (as below) which seemed be the most suitable for our needs. Since owning this boat, we have been able to allow our older members to complete their RYA Powerboat awards in tidal locations, something that we weren't previously able to do with the Dory.
A VHF radio would be a very beneficial donation to us, particularly as we are now exploring the options of coastal boating.
Any support is very much appreciated.
