One of the great advantages of launching at Putney was to cruise past Westminster, See all the sights an go to see the barrier.

This puts us straight in the middle - what are the cruising plans?

Please let me know asap

Graeme

Plan B

Graeme, I suggest going to the barrier then up to putney see the totty in the boat race and praps a bit uf lunch/swift pint and back down to the isle of dogs.

At least launching here were not restricted by the tide.

What do you think.

Plan B

Yes - agree that would e great - I take it if this slip is not affected by tide etc we could recover at our leisure?

Trip to the barrier then back to Putney would still get us to see all the sights.

As for the Totty - Sian says she has a new Dyson you can borrow if seeing all the Totty is just too much for you. Cant think what she means!

If we are going to that slip my route takes me down the M40 rather than along the M4. That means we could meet up at South Mimms Services on the M25 at around 0745 if that is OK with you?

Jools

What are your plans now?

Its better for me to come straight downthe M1, is it not better for you to come M40 - A40 straight through Ealing?

We could drop Sian & Amy off in town why we take a steady cruz up to Putney to check out the local oars, sorry i mean rowers.....

Must admit it would be good t meet with someone who knows the route.

What time do we need to be at South Mimms to get us to the launch place by 0900?

(got message re PB2 - thanx)

About 0745-0800 would be good for me, think that about 120 miles for both of us; so a 0600 start.

I'm sure i know the way??? straight down the A10 hook a right at the bottom and were on the river. Easy!!!!!!
