Easter Monday 2012

Club sailing on a Thames Barge

A very intersting trip made even more interesting by the skipper who answered all our questions about barges and sailing them

Not great weather at Maldon

There was a wedding reception on one of the barges

Two other barges followed us out

We headed for open water.....

....past the entrance to the Chelmer and Blackwater canal.....

.....then hoisted the sails

Sailing back in to Maldon

wew passed a TID tug in need of some TLC

The wedding party got back before us
