I sailed with the Merlins in the Tideway event on sunday. What a great day out. Well organised and friendly crowd. Special thanks to all those Thames clubs who took part in the organiseation.

Putney bridge was scary the first time.

Rog, did you have to heel the boat to get under the bridges?

No there is a surprising amount of room underneath the arches. hmm I feel a song coming along here .

Tacking through you could tack under the span and even the tallest mast around 24 ft cleared ok.

I was wandering over Vauxhall Bridge the other day, thinking about you lot and the Enterprises as well, and it did look awfully tight.....  Obviously not that awfully tight.

Well done to the Enterprises for blasting across the Channel and back again.
