Hi Crazyhorse.
Not sure on that one, it took us about 40 minutes to get down the Thames from there at 30 - 40 knots but no idea how long it would take to get to France. Weather would decide that.
There are no restrictions on the way out except you will have to radio the Thames barrier so they can let you through.

Cheers

Ozz

Hi Ozz ,I ment to say how many miles to Calais.

Looks like you had a great time down there and it seems real interesting,It must be great to swan past the Houses of parliment in your ribs.

One day I will be joining you.

Thanks I will buy a chart and have a look.

Cheeers .
