Just spoken to Julie at Chas Newens Marine and she says she will be able to do launch and recovery for those who are unsure about the slip or without a 4x4. More good news is that no big events are programmed for the rowing clubs.

She has suggesting trailer parking on the single yellows will be OK, but watch this space as I have a cunning plan up my sleeve!

Even though I was the first to reply with my interest - I think I may have to pull out of this trip.

There seems to be too much stuff happening locally that weekend with Hugh down in Cornwall - and also potential Scillies trip on the cards.

Definitely want to see London from the Thames thou - so will be up for the next one.

Might mean you have less trouble getting somewhere for lunch without me anyway

Have a great day - I look forward to the pictures

OK no problems there. Thank you for letting me know quickly.

Even with the two withdrawals we are still on with 11 boats!

I am going to visit Limehouse basin on Saturday to test the pubs and see if they can fit us all in. I feel duty bound to fully check the hospitality before comitting to a particular establishment!

I am still looking into the parking but I'll let you know once its all sorted.

If anybody has any other questions please post or PM me.

Chris

Take care on the Thames...was out on Sunday and hit a HUGE piece of ship's rope lurking just under the surface by Chelsea.

Took a blade of the SS prop clean off.

No need to bring a spareprop as I am based on the Thames and this is the first damage in 3 years....however be aware!

I have to say in 5 years out on the Thames the nearest I've come to hitting something was a particialy sumbermerged builders bag. Any how as promised this is going to be a cruise not a race so no worries on hitting debris!

(Timw - Hope you get your prop sort ok...have you tried Stainless Developments in Wandsworth??)

I had hoped this weekend to get out on the River on Saturday for a restaurant recce but at the last minute I ended up at Rutland Water for the Eric Twinane Finals. We will do a proper recce asap to sort out food. I'll drop a line back once its sorted?

Chris
