Raid events only happen if someone volunteers and does the work of organising the event.
A pair of these elusive paragons have come forward. Neville and Val Khambatta are willing to organise the fourth English Raid (ER4) which will take place in the Norfolk Broads. Support will be provided by members of the The Norfolk Punt Club (http://www.puntclub.co.uk/).
The dates will be Monday 5th August – Friday 9th August 2013. This is deliberately in the school holidays as we wish to encourage younger Raiders.

For reasons of safety and organisational logistics we feel that we need to limit the Raid to around 20 boats and a maximum of around 60\65 Raiders.
A number of boats that were previously registered have had to withdraw for assorted reasons of bad luck, misfortune and recalcitrant crew. Thus we do currently have room for more boats. Our best wishes to those who have had to withdraw. They have all done so with the greatest reluctance.

We also believe that we have a volunteer willing to organise the 2014 Raid. likely to take place in the Falmouth area.
What about a Poole Harbour Raid in 2015 or even the fabled Channel Raid (Portland to Lymington) ? (Hows that for forward planning !)
