Maiden voyage

Got a week off next week, so really wanting to get the new Honwave out for a first trip. Planning on launching from Gillingham Pier and heading down the Medway for a couple of hours each way. Weathers not great but Monday looks the best, a few hours of midday sunshine albeit only max 9deg but wind looks minimal and high tide at 2pm so can be in by noon, head down with the tide and back on the ebb.
Iíve never been here before so if anyone has any tips or advice do share!

Know nothing helpful about your intended cruising area but do enjoy getting out. We had the chance to launch on salt water for the first time in well over a year this Sat but with a north wind gusting to 20+kt and a "feels like" temperature of 1degC decided to give it a miss despite the temptation.
