Thames Barge Match Delivery and Race Trip

We will be taking part in this year’s Thames Barge Match on 22nd June, and would like to invite anyone who is interested in joining us for the match itself and/or the trip there and back to the River Thames.

The trip is split into three parts and people can do one or all three parts, as they wish:

20-21 June: 2 day trip from Ipswich to Gravesend (£100 per person)
22nd June: 1 day, taking part in the River Thames Barge Match (£100 per person)
23-24 June: 2 day trip from Gravesend to Ipswich (£100 per person)

Please email info@thalatta.org.uk if you have any questions, or to book your place!

Please note:
As it is important we get to Gravesend and back to Ipswich on time, we may have to use the engine, but will sail as much as possible if conditions allow. All food will be provided, and will be of the ‘filling and wholesome’ variety (no posh nosh!). Anyone who wishes to attend the end of race meal and prize-giving ashore, will need to pay a modest charge (approx £10-£15). Anyone leaving the barge at Gravesend will need to organise and pay for their own transport back home by train or bus etc. All start and end times shown in the schedule are approximate and you will be given more details when you book.


2 and 3 day Cruises in 2019

We are planning some exciting 2 and 3 day cruises for 2019 and before selecting dates we would like to find out if people are interested! We will travel around the creeks and rivers of the East Coast, stopping each night in a quiet anchorage. You can be as involved in the running of the barge as much or as little as you would like – take a turn at the wheel, help set the sails, or just sit, chat and relax and enjoy the changing views. Prices are likely to be around £200 & £300 respectively and will include accommodation and all meals. Dates will depend on the level of interest and availability of Thalatta. Anyone interested should contact mike.keeling@thalatta.org.uk in the first instance.

Day Sails 2019

Saturday 4 May
Saturday 1 June
Saturday 29 June
Saturday 10 August

We have four of our very popular Day Sails planned for the 2019 season. Each trip is limited to 12 guests which means that everyone can be actively involved in all aspects of working the vessel from sail handling to steering. Alternatively just sit and watch the beautiful rivers Orwell and Stour pass quietly by.

Coffee, tea and soft drinks together with a light lunch will be provided for an inclusive price of £70 per person.

Departure will be from Ipswich Haven Marina around 9.30am and we will return around 4.30pm(ish).
