Chaps

We have been contacted by the commodore of Tamesis Club which sails between Kingston railway bridge and Teddington lock.

They have invited us to come and speak at one their meetings later in the year and to open discussion about the mutual use of our great river. This is excellent news and we are delighted and have of course accepted the invitaion.

We had already been discussing about improved river relations between anglers and boaters up and down the Thames and creating a better understanding, so this is an ideal opportunity.

Cass posted yesterday about some sort of signal given such as Oars Up when rowers come along, it is a wide ranging discussion and one that we needed to start.

Its not just the Thames, it is every river and we all have to co-exist which happens for the vast majority of the time.

We will update you as it all progresses but as always happy to get comments.

Great news buddy, they're about a week ahead of us, as we're still composing the email for all boating/sailing/canoe clubs along our reach, we'll have to keep our eyes on this mob as they seem at the top of their game. The great news is that it proves the strength of the flyer we keep handing out.

"Oars Up"

Great campaign slogan for an angling, boating (dare I say it, canoeing) affiliation for greater understanding between the river users...

After a couple of aborted dates we finally did a presentation to the Tamesis sailing club last night

http://www.tamesisclub.co.uk/Anglers11.doc

Tamesis are based near Trowlock Island on the Teddington bank and are a competetive racing sailing club

The history of this meeting is that we wrote to a dozen or so boat clubs last autumn introducing the TAC, only a few responded, Tamesis being one.

We went through the story of the TAC (so far), our aims and objectives and current campaigns and how we fit into the big society. We talked in particular about pollution and the tidway tunnel, a mutual problem of the itinerant boaters, Hydro power, litter, loss of amenity, canoes, invasive/non native species, byelaws, illegal fishing and fish removal and more.

Lots of very good Q&A throughout made it worthwhile

We discussed issues with anglers and sailors which on the whole is very minor but was good to get a better understanding, we need to follow up and discuss what they raised so will report back.


Another very useful item to come out of it was about the local reach coordination meetings. We were aware of the principle but not the practice so will progess that. The reach coodrination is where all river users along that section agree (or not) a diary of events so that they do not clash, conflict. As anglers we will have but a few but importnat all the same. They have not had angling clubs/groups come along so we will fill that gap. Again the TAC getting anglers voices and heard in the wider arena.

Cheers

Well done lads - good work Basketball

Something to consider ....could always invite them to the Kingston clear up Feb 27th seeing as they're on the same stretch? Especially if it's boat based?

We could try and get both clubs in the local papers - if we do that it'll help you guys build bridges even quicker.

Just an idea...

good shout m8, but I have a couple of reservations
firstly if we invite one group/club, should we invite all the ones we're communicating with
secondly, health/safety and organisation gets complicated
thirdly we're gonna have around half a dozen boats ourselves and no shortage of our own members who wanna get down and dirty

I think this is a superb example of what the TAC is and should be all about. The Thames is a wonderful shared environment and it is up to all users to work together to protect the river and maximise their enjoyment of it whilst at the same time showing respect for other user groups.

Well done guys.
