Brentford to the Solent aboard Time Lost

Time Lost eased out of Brentford Dock on freeflow, them moored for a few minutes on the new pontoon by Chiswick Bridge to lower the radar arch. As lovely as this new pontoon is it has no cleats so mooring is clearly discouraged. The sun shone as we made our way through London and down the Thames towards the Medway, finally reaching Chatham at about 9pm.

The next leg of the voyage was supposed to take us from Chatham to Brighton, however an engine fault resulted in us heading into Newhaven instead. George plans to keep Time Lost on the south coast over the summer.
