The Tuesday Night Club on Tour


Tour 2001


Thames Estuary, Medway, Swale, Thames Estuary, Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation, Thames Estuary and Tidal Thames to Brentford

7- Chelmsford to Heybridge Basin, Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation.

Monday 7th May 2001

Linda + kids + dogs arrived at 09.00 and Passat abandoned in nearby car park. We shoved off for a non-stop trip back to Heybridge Basin, arriving at 16.15. No trouble was experienced on the way back, except Neil found the shingle shoal below Hoe Mill Lock again! Linda was dropped off at Tesco's and got a taxi back to Chelmsford to pick up Passat. The boat was put to bed, just up the lock cut, as we did not have any real idea when the crew / weather could get together for a return trip up Thames Estuary.
