My name is Brian Dempsey and I am the captain
of the Dublin Airport
Police & Fire Service
Rowing Team in Ireland
. We are a small charity based club which has raised over €150,000 for good causes and this year we hope to add to this total by rowing from Boston Harbour to The Statue of Liberty, passing through five U.S. states beginning on Thursday the 21st of May. We are trying to source a support boat
and an inflatable/zodiac that might be willing to accompany us for at least one day of this four day event (or perhaps longer if possible). The rowing team is made up of two crews (5 officers in each) which will be rowing for an hour on/hour off basis for approximately 12 hours each day. We plan to stop each night along the way in Onset, Stonington, Fairfield and finally in Manhattan on Sunday the 24th of May. If you or anyone you know might be willing to assist us I would be very happy to hear from you. I realise that this is a significant request but as we are such a small club we rely mainly on the kind assistance of others. We will of course cover any costs involved and be more than happy to highlight such assistance on all of our media coverage which we hope will be significant in order to highlight the good work
that our charities are involved in.
Many thanks indeed for your consideration.
