Obviously your first child.
I assume you mean St Cats. Will there be much going on around there or are you planning an epic run up the River Lea to get in the thick of it?
yes all in at St Kats. Bearing in mind the Olympics open that day I would imagine there will be a fair amount of people as a minimum and will be a great atmosphere, will probably be able to see any fireworks going off in stratford, good ship Velocity has 8 on board that day/ evening, really glad the sea toilet is back in!
I believe PLA rules are that between the 16th July and 16th September you can only be on the Thames between Richmond Lock and the barrier if you have pre-booked with them and actually have a destination berth between those points. So if I am correct bere this in mind if planning a little trip into London
So come on the Motorvator... are you going to telephone St Kats and get the SS booked in for the 27th July?
What next to a boat with a screaming new born aboard. Let me think.
Truthfully I can't really book anything in at the moment. I have a couple of weeks with the family in mind early July probably down to the south coast and across to channel islands weather permitting.
A weekend in Calais, The annual Medway piss up, a week up to Norfolk to see the six fingered reatives and a hope of getting down to the Cowes Torquay race late August.
That and a weekend entertaining clients in Ostend in the hope of attracting some business to pay for all the diesel involved!
So with trying to fit all that round the weather I've given myself a busy (Unachievable) season already.
Oh and don't talk to me about PLA rules having gone through the mill with trying to organise a powerboat race in the outer reaches.
No notice to mariners on what you posted as they probably realise they are overstepping their remit with that one.
For an organisation that supposedly promotes recreational use of the river they don't do very well in my book.
