Fleet Review 2005 help needed

Richard Salaman sent me this by email. I have suggested that he join the forums, but in the meantime, here's his request:

================================================== ====
Rib Owners

I need help for the Fleet Review on the 27th and 28th June this year.

I have been tasked by QHM Portsmouth to co-ordinate the Rib operation .

The Fleet review takes place on Monday June 27th - Rehearsal day and Tuesday June 28th - The Review.

The job of the Ribs is front-line marshals charged with keeping all Spectator craft inside their designated boxes. You
will be patrolling along the outer line and therefor in the front row.The line will be marked by Navigational buoys,
Laid marks and Mother ships anchored in the line. You will be given a patrol sector and a mother ship attachment that
will act as a victualling point for tea loos, etc.

The location of the operation is the whole of the Eastern Solent from just East of Cowes to Bembridge. The Fleet will
be anchored in the middle of the Solent and the patrol areas are on both North and South Sides. Full details will be
issued in due time.

Comms will be VHF. You are the front row marshals. You are working for QHM Portsmouth and acting under a warrant
issued by him to authorise your operation.

The requirements are a Rib not less than 6 metres long. VHF Radio 25 watt fixed not a hand held. 1 member of the crew
to have RYA Level 2 or better.

You will issued with an ID Flag, some clothing and there will be fuel supplied to all both Diesel and Petrol.

The down side is that it will be long days and quite hard work but you are in the front row. There is not any
accommodation available. I am trying to get a launch area for Ribs where they can leave trailers etc.More on this one
later.

You will be working as part of a team of 100 Ribs on the water and will need to be flexible and able to move around
and reposition etc.

Finally there will be land briefings prior to the event in June at various places and times which you need to attend
one to get your instructions etc.

Now If you are Interested in helping out on what should be a great but busy day please Email me and I will put you on
the definite list. If wishing to join then a brief outline of your rib would be helpful.

Any questions please feel free to Email or call me. Email is the safest as I am out a lot.

I look forward to a flood of yes's!

Kind regards

No need to worry - the point of contact is Richard Salaman.

Hope that clarifies it!

As far as I know Richard Salaman is the organiser. I think that Alan Priddy may have been doing some organising of a group of RIBs from BIBOA (for Richard). Don't know what Robert Avis's involvement is.

Just a thought, but you might want to check that your insuranse covers commercial work? and before anyone says it isn't work your are being supplied with some clothing and fuel. This will mean you are being paid! imho
Hope i am wrong though.
Regards
