Central London Cruise - 9th September

Central London cruise,

In chatting with a few folks yesterday and at Pwllheli there is a high degree of interest in a cruise in london. September might be best for most folks it would seem.

Perhaps aiming for a saturday so that the folks who have to travel miles from up north and wales etc can get home ok

are you up for it?.

I would like to enter my provisional interest for that as long as there is good safeish parking near the M3. I would like to travel up from Basingstoke on the morning of the trip and return same day if possible.

cool looks like we are in good shape, some folks are going to be travelling miles and miles i see so perhaps we could stay over night somewhere and have the sunday as well if the weather is good ...Just an idea

anyone got any recommendations on marina to use and bb/guesthouse or hotels to use that are reasonable ?

Hugh,

Myself and 1 crewman have now reserved Saturday the 9th September for the Thames Cruise. Best of luck with your planning.

Although I am worried about my boat in this heat as its stuck on the south coast and I'm not too sure how hard the tubes will get.

I might be up for this again. If your after somewhere to stay, Battersey travel lodge is nearby and if you book early enough could be as low as £25 for a double room. There's normally enough parking to get a RIB in the carpark too.

I have had a look at the tides and unfortunately they are not very good for a trip.

9th September 2006
(Saturday)

@ London Bridge

0235 1.90m
0918 0.36m
1447 7.60m
2151 -0.12m

+0031 for Putney Bridge
+0100 for BST

So we are talking about 0.36m of water at 1050ish......hmmm. These are not good tides for the trip.

It might be best to launch after lunch at Putney, fly downstream, grab a bite for supper to eat then explore down towards Dartford.

Hugh, the plans we dicussed on the phone (ie launch at Petersham) are not possible with these tides.

Chris
