Tideway trip – May 17th 2014

I was lucky enough to be invited to crew on VINCENT JOSEPH, who were joining the SPCC convoy of 19 boats (most of the time):  Limehouse – Margaretness – Teddington.

A fabulous trip – as flat as glass through the barrier, but very busy in central London and quite a bit to keep us on our toes. As a  result I did not take many photos, but there are a few below.

A more detailed record of the day is on the Vincent Joseph’s blog here, and more  photos here

We had a challenging piece of ballet at the Woolwich ferry – see the powerpoint schematic here.
