Default No Illusions

Bob, you are quite right that it would be a serious problem at the turn around. But my proposal would keep them back until after the turn around. The boats would follow behind the Judges Boat to the finish line. That would keep them out of the hair of the boats involved in the race or celebration or whatever it is called. It evidently worked for Jeffersonville and they were not even kept behind the towboats.
I have no illusions that this will ever happen in today's society. This is just dreaming of a perfect world. We are all just too hung up today on what coulda, shoulda, or might happen and how we need to be protected from ourselves.
