I'm sure no one from RIBnet would object, but the authorities would.

From the Port of London Authority web site:

"Except in specially defined areas (see below), the use of Personal Water Craft (PWC) – i.e. jetskis, jetbikes etc, water-skiing, aquaplaning, and parakiting are not allowed on the tidal River Thames in a fairway or within 200 metres of any public beach, bathing place, residential property, wharf or jetty.

The only authorised areas for PWC are:

Fobbing Creek - Launch at Pitsea Hall County Park
West Beach, Southend - Contact Southend Council Pier and Foreshore Office"

Not good news I'm afraid!

Thanks for the information John, I half expected this would be a problem but was not entirely sure.

I was hoping to do this trip however we are in the middle of selling a boat and buying something new and also the tides are not looking favorable for this. Also new job has been extremely busy of recent so not really had any time to do any planning at the moment which is a real shame.

We want to do the thames run but may need to wait until the current busy period is over before we plan it.

If others are carrying on with the cruise then have a great day
