great river race 2015

Well done to Deborah and her team for their valiant efforts on Saturday.  To cut a very long story short, our ‘Promising Paddlers’ valiantly battled high winds and even higher waves for 40 minutes before being forced to abandon ship just before Tower Bridge.

The crew of 10 were all fine and rescued by the RNLI and taken to St Katherine’s Dock as the capsized boat was towed away until Tower Bridge.



A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported them in this truly mad adventure and if you want to make a sympathy donation, there is still time via the JustGiving page

They didn’t make the finish line but they did have an unplanned swim in The Thames and a ride in an RNLI boat instead. So who’s up for doing it all again next year??
