Have a look at the map on my thread or the Chas Newmens website.

When I went there the strech or road down stream from Glendary St. was very tight with cars on both sides. Up stream of Glendary St was tight but I got through OK.

Tell your girlies there is a public (pay) toilet right up the end of the road by the park.

If your coming from the west you don't need to go down that road and you can by pass it by going down Thames Place anyway.

Having gone on the trip last year I can highly recommend it

Couple of things I learnt that others might find usefull :-

(1) Take at least 5 worth of change for the parking meters at Putney.

(2) Wheelclamp & hitchlock for trailer.

(3) Keep an eye for debris in the water (I caught a car tyre)

Have Fun & dont forget your camera!

PS: Lookout for the waves under Blackfriars Bridge on the Ebb tide

13 and 2!


We are now at 13 boats.

Northern Exposure 3
Voyager
TBA (TimM)
Southern Comfort
Barrier II
Avon Rib
Andromeda
Seahawk 3
Zodiac Rover
The Bizz
Fujimo
Snapper
Pheonix

Being such a large group we need to set some deadlines and address some problems.

1) Food
Due to the number we have I need to book something with the restaurant as soon as possible. Please can you confirm by the 26th May how many on your boat will want a place setting for food. If I don't hear from you I'm sorry but I wont make a reservation for your party.

2) Parking
Parking for 12 vehicles plus trailers = 24 spaces! Not insurmountable but it will require us to seperate cars from trailers. I am hoping to book (may require a small donation to Wandsworth Council from everybody!) some trailer parking on Putney Embankment so please bring your wheel clamps etc.

Cars will then need to park away from the Embankment and the drivers walk back to the boats. If you follow this LINK it shows you dark pink areas labelled "A5 subzone" which we can park our cars in.


This going to add time to your launching so please arrive early so that we are all ready on the water ready to go at 1000.

Thanks

Chris

For 26 notes its hard to justify getting up that early to yourself isn't it!

Don't blame you.

Chris
