Massive thanks to everyone involved in the Bathtub Race 2014!

Your intrepid organiser has just about got his breath back and would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone involved in this year’s Incredible Arun Bath Tub Race.

Everyone on the organising team is a volunteer and this takes a huge amount of time to organise and a lot of effort on the day.  We are not a Limited Company or a committee and would not wish to be.  We do it for the love of the sport and for the many friends we have gained over the years since I took the helm in 2002.

So without further ado, thanks are due to:

BAM Nuttall, One Call Hire and Massage Tech for sponsorship of the event,

Billy Johnson and Lee Harrison at the Harbour Office for their assistance,

Caroline and the team at Look & Sea and the Harbour Lights Bistro,

The RNLI for sharing the slipway,

Lewis from BAM Nuttall and Peter and Jason from Felpham Sea Scouts for the safety boats,

Erik Jack (the Bathtub Races’ very own Murray Walker!) and Richard at Black Light Disco for jovial entertainment, cheesy jokes and appropriate tunes chosen for each entry!

Tim Dutton for bringing along the incredible Dutton Commander amphibious car,

Jane and Dave Smeaton and Dennis and Evelyn Cooke for administration, scrutineering and lots of encouragement,

Mum and Dad for allowing their dining room to become Bath Tub HQ for several weeks,

He (She?) who chose which event to send the fabulous weather to (there must have been some very sound reasoning behind that decision!),

who else, ah yes,

those crazy crews in their floating (ish) machines without whom we simply would not have an event (nice one guys n gals).

Many thanks to all and those I have surely forgotten (you’ll know who you are!).

All in all a bloomin’ marvellous day and raising funds for Chestnut Tree House too.  That I think is known as a result!


P.s. stay tuned for a race report and lots of photos coming soon!
