    • Chatham Dockyard

    Specifically for us in the SE (and anyone else who fancies it of course) put Saturday 21st October in your diary if you fancy a conducted tour around VIC 56 at Chatham Dockyard. 


    The tour is on BUT she will only be in steam if enough of us show interest so please mail me back with numbers if you can make it - be wonderful to see her "warmed up". There is just so much to see at the Dockyard so I suggest that anyone who fancies going arrives in the morning to do their own thing followed by us meeting at the ship at her moorings in the dockyard  at 13.00 hours.


    There is an entry fee for the yard but no charge for VIC56. If enough of us commit to going then there may well be a deal to be had..........let me know by Oct 6 latest if you are coming and I will negotiate!  See the links below for more info

    Puffing a' Wey

    Puffing a' Wey is a joint SBA and National Trust event which brings colour and variety to the centre of Guildford in high summer. The event is highly economical, the only charges being made for the Saturday evening meal provided on site and to which SBA boaters and National Trust workers are invited.

    We are guests of the Trust and licence fees are waived for the weekend, for which we are very grateful but the deal is that if you are able (i.e have checked with your boat insurers) it is hoped that boats will welcome non-paying interested visitors for the occasional short puff along the river. This can be a lot of fun - rewarding in itself - and, of course, there is an attractive river to explore and nice places to moor up and eat over the weekend.

    Boats can arrive from 9.00 on the Friday and stay over until the Monday if desired. There is ample trailer space and camping is possible too. Dapdune is a delightful venue... Oddly rural while also slap in middle of Guildford, and the Wey is an attractive navigation a little bit reminiscent, in parts, of the Upper Thames.

    Call Mark Rudall for further details... 01252 645486 or email mark.rudall@ntlworld.com
