Because It’s There Adventures – Thames Sailing Barge Expedition Programmes – 2023

A unique experience sailing a Thames Barge on the Blackwater Estuary and East Coast. Expeditions are planned to make best use of the prevailing weather conditions and tides.

Our Bronze, Silver and Gold programmes are normally run as one event but may also be split into two parts so there is a gap between the practice and qualifying expeditions.

There is accommodation in cabins for up to 10 participants plus one adult (free) for overnight pastoral care.

These expeditions are suitable for non-swimmers provided that they wear a life jacket when on deck.
