Assuming that you have chartplotting facility to study an up to date chart and pre-plot a safe route ( and you also have a depth sounder to confirm exactly what is beneath you ) , just go for it ! ( Subject to all the normal caveats of wind and tide ) . Also be aware of all the other users ( big and fast ) . I would only be out there in a good weather window . There is a previous thread that covers a part of your route here ( but it won't be the answer to a maiden's prayer ! ).....

Navigation - North Foreland into Thames

This may also help.......

Good luck !
