If you are new to sailing Yachts this is the place to start. We are a friendly club run totally by volunteers.

Would you like to have a go on a yacht with the intention of becoming a member. You do not need any experience or special equipment. We will be able to give you a go on one of our yachts with a skipper who will be happy to take you out for a sail.

Cruise to Limehouse Marina

18 / 19 June 2016 Details on departure time to follow.

8 boats booked to come. Sorry no more space. Limehouse have asked for a deposit which I will pay. Please let me have £25 per boat when you see me next.

 I have good news that the price per meter will be £3.35

Cruiser trip Limehouse marina 18 / 19 June

Most of the boats left around 10.00 on an overcast Saturday morning with the wind in the north east there was a fair bit of tacking up the river. All the boats met up just before the Woolwich ferry and fell in to line to go through Foxtrot. Once though the barrier the water began to get choppier and when we arrived at Limehouse it was positively rough with the waves bouncing of the walls.

  Once entering the lock things began to calm down and with the first 4 boats in the others had to wait a bit longer. The first 4 boats were told to moor up in the furthest corner of the marina in a v shaped pontoon. After the first boat moored up it became easy to help all the others fit into a small space.

After the fun of tying all the boats up to my surprise bottles of G&T beer and wine appeared from all directions and a social afternoon was had by all. We were hoping to go into the CA for dinner but they had another large group in so could not cater for all of us, so we ended up eating in different places. After dinner and another small drink we all had a very peaceful night.

The next morning was sunny and warm we locked out 12.30 and 13.30 and sailed or motored back to the club.
