Notice to mariners

No.21 of 2006
The Blade Run 17th August 2006

The Blade Run, a motor boat rally, will start from Tower Bridge on Thursday 17th August 2006 at 1030. The rally will involve up to 30 motor boats, of various types, which will make their way down river on the ebb tide with the aim of crossing the Channel to Boulogne that evening.

Participating boats will start assembling in the Upper Pool, on the south side of the river between Tower Bridge and London Bridge, from about 1000, and there will be a rolling start to the Rally from 1030. Each boat will start the event as it passes under Tower Bridge.

The Rally will proceed down river led by a RIB Pace Boat, as far as Lower Hope Point, and will be accompanied by 3 Safety Boats behind the final boat. A PLA Deputy Harbour Master will be embarked in the Pace Boat to provide guidance on the river passage and suitable speeds. Once clear of Lower Hope Point the boats will make for Ramsgate at their best speed.

Controlled navigation will be in force in the area of Tower Bridge from 1000 until all participants of the Rally have started, at approximately 1045, and will be indicated by a Harbour Service Launch patrolling the area and displaying flashing blue lights as necessary.

Further details will be broadcast by London VTS on VHF Channel 14.
