September Day Sails on Thalatta

September Day Sails on Thalatta

Following the success of our Friends Day Sails earlier this year we are repeating the event on Saturday 9th September. These will be the last opportunity to sail on Thalatta before we lay her up for the winter.

Day sails are great fun social occasions and being limited to 12 guests means that everyone who wants can be actively involved in working the vessel under sail.

Coffee/ tea/ soft drinks together with a light lunch will be provided. Departure will be from Ipswich Haven Marina around 10am and we will return 4.30pm (ish). As previously Friends can join us for £35 per head and others for £60.

Interested? Contact our Booking Coordinator at info@thalatta.org.uk and confirm your place on board.

Thames Sailing Barge Parade

Thames Sailing Barge Parade

At 12 noon on Saturday September 16th, 2017 Tower Bridge in London will open to allow a large fleet of Thames Sailing Barges to pass through and later retrace the route back to the West India Dock where most barges will be open to the public.

We want to take our fully refurbished 90ft Thames Sailing Barge built in 1906, Thalatta to this event and take advantage of the opportunity to offer people the chance to crew her on the trip down the coast from Ipswich and up the Thames to the West India Dock. This will involve 2 days on board, sleeping overnight in hammocks and all food for the trip at a cost of £100 per person each way. We will have berths for 8 people in addition to the regular crew and the trips are open to individuals or a group could book the entire 8 berths.

The provisional schedule for the two trips is:-

Trip down – Leave Ipswich around 8am on Thursday 14th and arrive West India Dock Friday 15th in the afternoon when guests will depart

Trip back – Leave West India Dock early Morning Monday 18th and arrive back in Ipswich late Tuesday 19th afternoon.

If you would like to join us on these trips contact our Booking Coordinator at info@thalatta.org.uk and confirm your place on board.

And in addition ….

For Saturday and Sunday 16/ 17th Thalatta will be available for a private corporate charter which will include up to 12 guests for the Tower Bridge passage and alongside for a larger number of guests (circa 40+). Thalatta provides large space both on and below decks for guests and this is a unique opportunity for a company to entertain their clients or employees. To discuss how we can provide a day to remember in more detail please contact mike.keeling@thalatta.org.uk
