  • Turning at Putney

    Author: Neil Pickford | Date: 22nd August 2017


    I think you will have noticed that a large barge has been moored projecting into the turning gap. There have already been some incidents of crews being swept on to the barge. We are hoping to get the PLA to accept that the positioning of that barge is hazardous to rowers, especially weaker ones. To do that we need to be able present the PLA with a report every time a crew has difficulties in the gap, however minor.

    So, please ask your members to inform you every time they have difficulties so they or you can generate a report. It will be the only way we can prove to the PLA what happens at the Gap.

    Best wishes,

    Bill Mitchell,
    TRRC / PLA Liaison
