1041 Standing off on Chelsea Reach and call up RNLI on cellphone “to ask for assistance”. Chiswick with us in minutes and along side. Tower arrived soon after.
Chiswick crew member onboard at bow to take the training video. Grotty day, cloudy, warm with drizzily misty rain.
1239hrs both teams had completed their trials. We headed back to Chiswick just making our mooring on the fallling tide.

Chiswick appear to have won the day for skill so with game over time to head off back home to mooring.
