We are planning a combined rally at Limehouse Basin, London for South Coast sailors, East Coast Sailors and Thames river cruisers (plus anyone else who would like to come along) over the weekend of Friday 14th July to Monday 17th July. I am guessing that the Shadow members will travel together in a mini flotilla down the Thames and it now looks like we will have a Victoria fleet travelling up the Thames with 2 or 3 yachts coming round from the Solent joining up with East Coast sailors at the Medway for a final trip up to Limehouse.
According to the information for Limehouse Marina the lock into the marina operates from 08.00 to 18.00 daily for 3hrs ether side of high water.
For Friday 14th July HW at London Bridge is at 18.03 BST so entry into the marina is from 15.00 until 1800.
For Monday 17th July HW is at 08.01 BST so we will be able to leave from 08.00 until 11.00
We will arrange a meal for all to attend at a local venue on the Saturday night and there will no doubt be other social events / drinks parties over the weekend!
Any VSA member who is unable or unwilling to travel by boat is of course, very welcome to attend by car, train, etc.
If you would like to attend and in order to be sent further information in due course please contact
