I'm still looking for 5/6 more boats if anybody is interested.

Many thanks,

Chris
Oh blast I wanted to do this!!! And worst of all I will be there camping and watching after towing a Pembrokeshire 4 man + cox Rowing Boat all the way up to London. Not even getting my feet wet. Was not aware you were looking for boats, did not see the post

Morning all, is anyone launching from Lower Ham road slipway on Saturday morning? I fancy cruising in company and it's safety in numbers from those nasty rowing boats 😀

If that's the slipway just around from the camp site, then yes - sort of.

I'm planning on launching Friday night and putting her on a mooring overnight alongside others doing the same, then Saturday morning poddling down to the start - more then welcome to join us

Cool ... what time you setting off from the campsite? Looking at the tides I think the window of opportunity to clear Richmond lock closes sometime around 0700!?

Last year I'm sure it was afloat for 6am, and we only just made it for 10am.

Don't forget the boring speed limits.

Either way it was still dark when we left and I haven't seen morning darkness for a long time.

You need to be on the water ready to go at 5.30. You do not want to be last man down to Limehouse or you'll struggle to tie up. Make sure you have fenders.
