Does anybody know the dates for this cruise?

RIB International says in it cruising article that it is July 2-4, but the BIBOA calendar still says TBA.

I sure am, but it takes some arranging, thats why I need early confirmation of dates and location for launch and recovering, etc, etc.

Its the 2nd - 4th July

Thames cruise is confirmed for 2nd-4th July. Launching into Poplar Dock marina or the slip at the Docklands Scout project. Some launch Fri night, others early Sat. Usual format is to lock out opposite the Dome, run up through the city for the sightseeing / posing bit & possibly for lunch at St Kats. Then down to Chatham Maritime Marina on the Medway, overnight in Chatham/Rochester and back to London on Sunday.

I'll dig out Brian Thomas's (the organiser) details if you dont have them.

We'll be there with Barry & Penny on Morden 2, 8.5m Ocean.

Cheers,
Alan

Alan,


Thanks for that, all I need to do is find a good map of London and a Travellodge to sleep in.

Just had a look at Boatlaunch for the Poplar Dock Marina, not sure I like the idea of driving through London with the Rib behind me. us coutry boys can't cope well with crowds.

If you can manage to tow your RIB round the narrow Cornish lanes then London will be a breeze!

Nahh, no problem. Head round the M25 and then down the M11 to docklands. Its all bigish roads and noone messes once you've got a a trailer behind you!!

Seriously, Its not that much of an issue, don't let it put you off coming!
