The barge races are for the crews, the highlight of the sailing season and provide the sight of up to a dozen barges sailing together in friendly but serious competition. The start is always very exciting with these large vessels being manoeuvred in close quarters trying to gain the best position. A camera is vital! Join the crew of Reminder for an exciting day battling it out against the rest of the fleet and a fabulous chance to experience a Thames barge being sailed to full capacity.
Due to the risk of injury, you will not be asked to help with the sailing, so grab a safe seat on deck and get lots of great close-up photos.

Boarding details are sent by e-mail 4 weeks before a trip or when booking (check your junk folder). Be ready to board the barge 1/2 hour before sailing. Search for car parks near Maldon CM9 5HN, Ipswich IP4 1FH, Brightlingsea CO7 ODY, Harwich CO12 3HH
