One-day Cruise to West Mersea (Centaur)


Join us on our Thames sailing barge s.b.Centaur (1895) for a full day sail on the river Blackwater. Our plan is to visit the hidden gem that is West Mersea, a delightful blend of old fishing village and seaside town.  When under sail see how two people handle the barge and, when appropriate, you may fancy a trick on the wheel or a heave or two on the lines. Join the barge on Sunday morning before 07:00. Returning on Sunday at around 19:00.
