Also have you considered Chiswick Pier as a possible overnight location? Its a bit further up river but they are friendly and the money goes back into the Trust that manage the pier.

Home ยป Chiswick Pier Trust

There also is Imperial Wharf Marina near marina, again upriver but lots going on...

50/50 for me on Friday I'm afraid, I'll keep you posted.

I did originally mention it to a few friends but unfortunately as we're off the water this month I didn't follow it up (sorry).

Suzie, my partner, is having treatment for back problems otherwise we would have joined you for 3 days. Of course I can go boating on my own, but we usually enjoy it together. Back on the water for July I hope.

Are you coming to a waypoint off N.Foreland ? Perhaps "east last" or "long nose" navigation marks? This would be a good rendezvous.

The forecast is looking good for your trip F2, rising to 3 or 4 from the w on Friday. It might be force 5 from the west by late afternoon but you will be tucked away in the river medway before that.

Sunday for the trip home winds have swung to the S. Also quite light force 2-3.

The force 5 from the W late afternoon Friday makes it unattractive for me to come to the medway with you, as I prefer to return to Ramsgate Friday afternoon and this is a head sea for some distance.

Still I plan to launch "ballistic" tomorrow afternoon in anticipation.

Regrettably I'm crying off.

I can't bleed through the fuel following a recent filter change and will shortly have missed HW.

Sorry giles.

Take your fuel tank vent hose off and stuff your foot pump on it
