It's 12knts from margretness (where you should call for permission to pass through Thames barrier) right up to Wandsworth bridge. You won't be going as far up as Wandsworth bridge I doubt.

In reality you can keep the boat on the plane even if it's 13/14knts - no one seamed to mind when I did anyway !!

Oh, when you call the barrier - they give you a span to pass through. Travelling upstream, spans are designated from Left to right with A (alpha) being far left and not navigable. B (bravo) 2nd from left etc etc. Upto I think K span.

There is also designation as to which span of each bridge to pass under. Two amber lights indicate which span to use - three red lights closed.

A tall guy I used to know ran a useful website with all this info on it but it's long since disappeared unfortunately.
