    Default United Kingdom Firefighters Sailing Challenge 2020

    Hello All

    In May 2020 the annual UK Firefighters Sailing Challenge will take place
    in the Solent. This is a 3-4 day charity regatta open to all "blue
    light" services. I have the priviledge of being invited by one of the
    London Ambulance Service entries. This year they have entered a 5th boat
    under the LAS banner.

    Unfortunately the proposed skipper's qualifications don't meet with the
    charter boat insurers criteria. I was wondering if there is anyone on
    the forum who would be intersted in taking on the skipper's duties for this worthwhile cause.
    RYA Day Skipper with some miles under the keel seems to be sufficient and some racing experience.
    Association with the emergency services is not a requirement.
    Organisation would be at a minimum as our crew boss is very experienced at putting it all together and will do the co-ordination for both boats.

    If anyone would like more info then please PM me and I'll happily
    provide details for this really fun event. (sailing during the day, food
    and beer in the evening - what's not to like?!?!)

    Sounds great fun and the right people will be available if you have any accidents. To have a better chance of attracting suitable candidates I suggest you should post this in the Thames and Scuttlebut fora. Good luck!
