Thames Sailing Barge Match


This is a hands-on sailing trip which will start at Queenborough on the Isle of Sheppey.

After boarding Thursday evening, Friday will be spent sailing down the Thames towards Gravesend for the start of the Thames Barge Match on Saturday.  There will be a prize-giving ashore Saturday evening and on Sunday we will make the passage back to Queenborough

Meals included from Friday morning.  We like to maintain a “Club” atmosphere on board. If you fancy having a go at setting the sails or taking a turn on the wheel our friendly crew will “Show you the ropes” when safe to do so. If you just want to sit on deck and watch the experts that’s fine with us. When it comes to the domestic stuff we provide the provisions and everyone mucks in with some simple cooking and of course clearing up afterwards.
