It's a special event & worth the effort, you have the river to yourself & travel through the centre of the greatest city in the world as it wakes. I have great memories. Unfortunately we can't do it this year due to the dates. Don't be fooled, it's hard work, but worth the effort. You will be on the water for 12hrs at chugging speeds, trying to keep people alive, half of whom have a death wish......watch out for the dragon boats, their only redeeming feature is that they are easy to sink😏

Evening all,

The next email will be with you later this week with the safety fleet handbook, risk assessment and possibly the powerpoint presentation (if I get time!).

So far only ONE boat crew has contacted our secretary to confirm their place at the campsite. Please ensure you include how many people will be camping and how many tents you will be bringing. Please make sure you do this by the 22nd of August at the very latest.

I'm still looking for 5/6 more boats if anybody is interested.

Many thanks,

Chris

Hi Chris.

Do you have me down to camp?

I have sent the mail but didn't get confirmation, I also sent one about my crew numbers but didn't get a reply.
