3rd-4th-5th July 2015 @ Trent Valley Sailing Club - Trent Lock- Long Eaton NG10 2FY
For the 29th year, Trent Valley Sailing Club will again be host to Steamboaters.
The event has changed little over the years, so as it still seems to bring smiles to our grimy faces, it won’t be much different this year.
For the two cruising days, we have a choice of 4 navigations:
-Up the Soar to Normanton
-Down the Trent to Nottingham
-On the Erewash canal to Sandiacre
-To Shardlow on the Trent and Mersey
(with the possibility to visit Trevor Scott’s steam garden railway)
It is expected that boats will arrive on Friday, launching at either Redhill Marina or Sawley Marina.
Camping in any form is possible on the premises, and all facilities are available.
So, do clear a slot in your busy diaries, send me the completed entry form, with a cheque made out to J.B Tilley, we look forward to meeting up again.
- Arrive (for most) launching at Sawley Marina* (cheapest)
Buffet at 8pm, in the 100 year old Clubhouse.
- Communal Breakfast (8.30 - 9.300) in the Clubhouse
Off at 10 on our chosen waterway
Return in time for our banquet in the Clubhouse.
Gathering in the Club House from 7.0 eating at 8.00
