URGENT help needed for round the island

We were due to escort the TOE IN THE WATER (TITW) open 60 yatch around the isle of wight for the RTI race tomorrow - unfortunately we have had a major engine problem and cannot now help them

is there anyone out there with a solid relaible RIB who would be willing to escort this yatch around???

you would need to:
  • be at gosport @ 5am
  • have space to accomadate a doctor, Marine and one other around the island
  • have a RIB/fuel/relevant safety gear/experience suitable for going round the island what ever the weather!
If you available to help please do not post a reply (am posting on behalf of lurcher) but ring John on

07836 596619

many thanks

Also had a call from John.

I've PM'd Andre and called Tim Griffin, who may be able to help.

Is this cause something that RIBNET as a group could support in some way - or would we all needed to be coded if we took guys out ( even for an hour or two in the solent ) ?

I dont feel there is a much better cause to be able to give some time & effort to. especially compared to what these guys have given.

I believe this will go back to coding and whether needed, it is not for reward so should remain outside but need for safety gear, competence etc.
I was in town as the latest funeral for a young soldier killed in action today so agree a very good cause.

Sorry guys but as much as I would have liked to assist I cannot cos Seahawk V has been sold so I am ribless until new rib arrives.

It is great however that Tim has stepped in to help

Have a great day

Andre

Hi Ian

As it is a voluntary thing use of rib free of charge and my time free of charge no need for a coded rib , however the one that I am using is a 8 metre ocean with twin diesels and 8 man liferaft and more safety kit than most coded boats have so not a problem .

I happy to help out and its a small thing to give when you compare what these brave people have given already.

Cheers Tim
