Ribs from the Scillies Urgent

Trying to arrange support boats for the 10 top women kite surfers attemp to cross from the Isles of Scilly to Watergate bay.

We have been let down by a couple of people could do with one or two extra boats to help with the cover.

The girls will be on the Scillies from this tuesday 25th May and have set aside 7 days to look for a weather window

Filming of the event is sponsored by Redbull and there is already a lot of media interest. We have three ribs at the moment so if anyone has rib or other boat that would be interested I would be happy to talk to you.

Details of the crossing can be seen at

As well as attempting to get into the Guinness book of records the girls are raising money for the RNLI and the the Silke Gorldt Foundation.

Any help or contacts of who may be able to help would be appreciated.
