Would have to say try the Boatlaunch web site for a launching site.

If you want to get through the Barrier you need to give them a VHF call on 14 and ask permission from London VTS.

They will give you a barrier span to go through. Make sure you clearly explain if you are going uptream or downstream as this alters which span you need to head for.

Check with London VTS that the Barrier is not in defence position before you set off by listing to the river broadcast on Ch14 every 15 mins.

Make sure you know which span is which because they are not labeled. First time i made this trip they replied by saying "proceed ECHO span" and ofcourse i carried on looking for a sign, only to have to stop and consult the almanac before proceeding. They are labeled A-H or something but i can't remember which side is A.
