Medway trip – day 3 – Queenborough to Rochester

Just a reminder: technical details, GPS downloads etc, are on the “day1” posting here. The real-time photoblog starts here.

After a very good night’s sleep, a brisk briefing at 0740 and then off at 0755. Most people were awake. Pushing against the tide to get out of the Swale.

A bit of shipping in Rochester – unloading at the timber yard.
