Southend Air Show 2004 (Viewed from the River Thames)

As the show is less than two weeks away I thought I would bring the thread back into discussion.

Weather permitting I am planning to go watch the show on Sunday 30th May. Will be departing from Burnham Yacht harbour.

Options are to have an early lunch at Queenbough or Chatham Marina? then onto the show for the 14:00 start.

Hope some of you can make it.

( no food available at the marina itself although there is a pub at the back of the marina , however you would have to enter the marina to be able to moor outside the pub and thus i believe that a visitors charge would apply

Hope some of you can make it.

count me in !!

JCW i'm on day release from the misses so i'll come across from hernia bay for the air show on Sunday, tides are really not good and i'll have to launch fairly early and recover late, let me know if you plan to meet up at Chatam or Queensbourgh for lunch and i'll plan to make that too.

Chris,
The last time I went through the Havengore bridge there was about 0.6m of water on a 6m spring high tide.
We will be on neaps so I would suggest the long way around.

I am hoping LA Bamba will be ready for the weekend. The Power trim and tilt unit is in for repair and it is slow progress. I will use the 4.8 if its not ready. Meet up for say a 09:30 departure? Should give us plenty of time to get in and out of Chatham then onto the show.


Bilge Rat,
what would you recommend as a place for a place to stop for lunch?

I'm not going to the show, and don't want to interfere, but by chance was looking at the Port of London website, and they have a Notice to Mariners regarding exclusion zones near the airshow.

You probably know this already.

Thanks Tim,
You are right. The exclusion zone is cleary buoyed and does not interfere with the view of the show.

Notice to Mariners
