Not at the moment. However send me a PM with your contact details and anybody who comes up short of crew or without the right qualification I'll point in your direction.

Assuming people don't drop out we are OK for ribs. People who apply from now on are going on a reserve list.

Having a black rib always seems to get me stopped by the law at these type of events so having some sort of offical safety boat stickers / flags etc would be useful.

Save all emailing Chris perhaps we could get a list of relevant questions going?
David,

We are trying to arrange several slipways for different types of boats at different locations in West London. Secure boat parking, launching tractors, car parking, toilets, road closures, footpath diversions etc are on the list of things to sort out.

Paddles can be an excellent idea to get you out of trouble with 6 knots of tide and land water every bit helps!!

Each boat will get a flag to identify themselves to the PLA/Met etc.

Everybody will also get a large pack a month or two before the event stuffed full of information about the event and there will be a skippers briefing as well.

I encourage everybody to watch this video if new to the Thames - Port of London Authorities documentary about travelling on the Thames on Vimeo and to explore this website Boating on the Thames

Chris

It looks like it is going to be a great event - just need to try and book good weather!

Mike
Thank you Mr B!

Save the pennies, borrow some for the day or hit the boat jumble!

Do you have any other hard boats (such as rigiflexes) taking part in the safety cover?

There are a few larger hard boats taking part as control boats and the like but the majority are ribs.
