With their famous ochre coloured sails Thames Sailing barges in full sail were once a common sight all along the Thames Estuary.
And sailing is what they were built to do.
Come day sailing with us and see the life course through Will’s many square metres of canvas as she leaps into the waves. With remarkable speed and power, you can feel the thrill of large ship sailing, learning the ropes as we go, but also enjoying the relaxing wide open waters of the Thames estuary to the East.
We’ll lunch in a quiet bay, and soak up the sights and local birdlife. We can make this as exciting or relaxing as you want. Just come on board!
A full day between 10.00 and 16.00 is also possible, finishing with a Tower Bridge lift, and a central London disembark.
Day Sailing on a Thames Barge is perfect for corporate teams who want to get together, or just friends who want a different fun challenge on a day out. And if you want to be ‘sailed’ rather than sail yourself, that’s fine. We’ll keep you fed and watered as you kick back and relax on deck, and treat you to whatever level of sailing you would like. This day out can really be adapted for anyone.
