Interested in joining somebody for a river cruise up the Thames.

I am looking to buy my first rib and would love to meet anybody in London who owns a rib to find out how accesible the Thames is for launching and their experiences on the Thames. Are there any restrictions or port fees that i would need to pay?

Thanks, Barney

Hiya Barney and Welcome to RIBnet......

Exactly where in London are you ?

Many folk from here launch at Putney . To the East , launching at Poplar Rowing Club ( almost immediately opposite Greenwich ) is possible , as is Bargehouse Lane in Woolwich at slack high tide . These later two depend on size of Rib , towing vehicle and possiblly experience of skipper .

Try the search function on RIBnet , also look at the Boatlaunch website and also the PLA website .

Seven metre tides , which can flow pretty fast should not be under-estimated but some famous sights to be seen. Feel free to come back and ask for more info

The ribnet expert in the Capital is timw. May be worth getting in touch with him.
