This is very sad indeed. It was quite surprising last night at the IOW Festival watching the amount of parents who let their kids go out in the tender, no life jackets and row about the other boats. There were to little girls rowing in a tender in the dark, when the tender came past us anchored up and they were swimming in amongst all the other boats towing the tender behind them. They can only have been 6 and 8.
What were the parents thinking letting them:-
a) Go out in the tender amongst all those people in the dark
b) NO lifejackets
c) To allow them to swim amongst all the other boats in the dark when either of them could have been killed by a boat not seeing them in the water. Must have been easily 2-300 boats up there last night. Crazy scenario.
Anyway rant over.
