Help needed for sundays Barts Bash (21st Sept 10am)

Barts Bash, Sunday 21st, 10am start 

In order to comply with the Guinness world record attempt, we need your help.

We are short of one or two people to take photos and video the start and finish from the Committee Boat.  There role is outlines below.

  • Video of the event. We need to ensure that the start and finish of the race is recorded by video. You do not need to record the whole race.
  • Take photos of the event, preferably of the start line where the boats are massed. If possible for publicity, a group shot (or shots) on land would be fantastic with your club flag in front of the group etc.

We need two independent witnesses (must be non members and not family members of anyone racing) They will need to be on the rib while it measures the course using GPS, then witness the race start, recording of results and the finish from the Committee boat.  Do you know anyone?

  • All clubs wishing to enter the Guinness world record attempt MUST have 2 independent witnesses. We will provide statements for them to sign. These signed statements will be required following the event.
  • Independent witnesses cannot be members of the club and cannot be linked to the race in any way. i.e. family taking part in the race.
