I went along with Trevor and Jeanna to crew on their narrowboat GLAD-WIN. After the St Pancras Cruising Club safety brief on Friday, five boats set off early for a trip on the ebb down to Margaretness. They were spotted by friendly photographer @Thameswatch, who posted some photos on twitter here.
Meanwhile SENTINEL, GERTRUDE (who also took some photos of the early birds) and GLAD-WIN had a lie-in, and then made some desultory preparations for the off.
Superyacht VANISH (a somewhat inappropriate name?). I discover from Superyacht Times that it only sleeps 12 guests.
Getting nicely lined up for Cannon Street and Southwark Bridges
Waterloo Bridge, and Tower Lifeboat
I think my favourite riverside Church – St Mary’s Battersea
