The Thames Sailing Barge Trust, wish to advise you that its series of half and one day sails for 2020 has now finished and the Trust will shortly start its programme of Winter maintenance. During this time our volunteers will be working under strict Covid guidelines.

The Trust hopes to be able to sail again from May 2021 and our sailing programme will appear on the website as soon as it is available. In the meantime if you have any questions around chartering or sailing, please contact our bookings secretary on

The Trust is a charity run by volunteers and we thank you for your support during this pandemic. We hope that 2021 will be a better year for everyone.

Introduction to the Thames Sailing Barge Trust (TSBT)

The TSBT is a registered charity that exists to preserve two Thames barges in sailing condition for the benefit of the public and to pass on the skills required to sail them. Although the TSBT owns the barges they are operated by a wholly owned trading subsidiary TSBT Sailing and Charters Limited. This is a non-profit company and all sailing fees and membership subscriptions are used to maintain and restore the barges and meet their operating expenses.
