We were on a wide beam, isn't she beautiful.
We were practising turning the boat around when we noticed two men running through the gardens of the houses that back on to the river.
One of the men jumped into the water and started to swim towards the boat, we cut the engine to be safe but he changed his mind and headed to the opposite bank
The other man was attacked by a dog in one of the gardens so he also jumped into the water but he held on to the bank as he didn't seem to be able to swim.
Our instructor phoned the police who were already nearby as they had been called to a burglary.
We collected the police from one side of the river and ferried them across to the other side so the could catch the one that got away.
When asked for a description we said he was a heavily built man wearing jeans and a red tee shirt and he was wet through!
Once he was caught we ferried the police officers back to the other side of the river so they could meet up with their colleagues.
All very exciting and gave me lots of practise at turning the boat around.
