The 2018 Trent STEAMBOAT Meeting
The 32nd Trent Steamboat Gathering, a good excuse for a party!
29th - 30th June, 1st July 2018
at Trent Valley Sailing Club - Trent Lock- Long Eaton NG10 2FY
For the 32nd 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)
