Bernie Thompson Race - 13th September

10th September 2014

Dear Tideway Captains and CWSAs,

Tideway Scullers will be holding our annual race in memory of my late doubles partner Bernie Thompson from Chiswick Bridge to Beverley Brook and back next Saturday the 13th at 11am. We've done this for many years and have hopefully developed a way of doing this which causes minimal concern to others. What we do is to marshall between MAA and UL on the Middlesex bank, then set groups of 10 scullers off with at least a minute gap between them so that we don't block the crossings etc. We turn around a moored boat at Beverley Brook before heading for home. Essentially it's no difference from having a group of scullers training together, there just will be a series of such groups.

We'll be finished by 12.45.

If anyone has any concerns or knows of any random events happening that might cause problems do let me know! I shall be competing so encouragement welcome (but abuse expected)


Chris Williams
