DVBC would love some help on race weekend on the 9th and 10th June from some wonderful people that would sit in a boat that you might be able to supply or you sit in one of ours for a day or half a day as river marshals / lollypop boats. You would be fed, watered, fueled up and appreciated and get to see some of the best boats and drivers in the country go round and round. Please send us a message if you could help, thank you.
