3rd September 2014

As I indicated last year, Limehouse marina has reduced the number of visitor berths and as such, despite attempting to book will in advance, I have not been able to obtain overnight moorings for our night cruise planned for 28th September. This is a great shame as it has always been a popular event, however it does indicate that to get into Limehouse, even with just one boat, let alone three or four, you clearly need to plan well ahead. Apparently Limehouse has applied for planning permission to increase the number of berths, however their plan is opposed by local residents, so is going nowhere fast.   

Best wishes

A reminder that The Great River Race takes place on
Saturday 27th September. As Brentford Dock Marina has a great view just 4 miles from the finish, we will once again be holding a charity BBQ on the riverbank in aid of the RNLI. Steve will be doing the cooking as usual, so all you need to bring is some money to buy a burger and a bottle or two of your favourite tipple. The river will be closed to boating anyway, so do come along and support, from 12.30 onwards through the afternoon.

Assistance setting us in the morning is always welcome, as are additional salads etc. If you are able to help out, or donate a salad etc, please liaise with Steve at stevetatham@hotmail.com or give him a call on 07710-990413.
