Tees Race Sunday 11th November

The club is running the national white water race on the River Tees on Sunday 11th November. Volunteers are required to provide safety for the Classic race and depending upon water levels for the sprint event on Abbey Rapids.

Itinerary for the day will be as follows

8:30 meet at Scotch Corner for butty
10:00 on water at Egglestone Bridge
Provide safety at key rapids for approx 45 min (both in boats and on bank- it will be cold so being plenty of warm drinks etc)

Afternoon safety at Abbey rapids

Water levels over the past few years have been unpredictable and vary from a bit of a scrape to mid river stoppers that held the raft. (Ask Smithy if you do not believe me)

Can any volunteers happy on performing rescues on grade 3+ water let Steve Thorley-Lawson know that they are coming (sthorleyla@aol.com) or usual mob number.
