Cross Channel Sailing Event Information

Arrive aboard in St Katharine Docks central London on the eve of Friday the 24th May for our Cross Channel cruise. Meet the crew and have a meal/evening ashore.

The Little ships fleet should be in/arriving at St Kats as we prepare to depart on Saturday to head down the Thames to Queenborough to check out the micro pub and possibly some of the famous fish and chips.

Next is either a stop at Ramsgate or push on across to Calais to arrive at the port of Dunkirk, before we cross into Belgium and either Ostende or Niewport. 

A big step across the channel follows, with possibly a sunset and a night sail to accomplish this. Back into Harwich for the final evening, poised for a gentle explore of the Walton Back-waters before finally returning along the river Orwell, to Woolverstone Ipswich by 1600hrs on Thursday the 30th May.
