Overview

You will also have the opportunity to become involved in hoisting sails and steering if you wish.

This experience was absolutely fantastic, the boat and crew were there for every thing we needed. The food was excellent, fresh and homemade.The scenery was beautiful, and it was great to see places I'd been to on land. It was made all the special knowing my dad had been on the same trip. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves sailing.

I chose this trip on a 100 year old Thames Barge as it sounded fun. It certainly was. It was one of the hottest days of the year so it was wonderful to sail down the Orwell. Wonderful views, superb lunch, a knowledgable skipper, good company and skilled sailing. It was brillaint.

Lovely trip down the River Orwell on Thistle. The skipper was informative pointing out many other Thames barges that were moored on the river in readiness for forthcoming races. We were served a very good ploughmans lunch and the drinks were reasonable prices from the bar. Staff and crew friendly and helpful.
