Sailing UPdate

The Trust has now published its sailing dates for early 2022 sailing season

All profits on our cruises and charters is used to fund the upkeep of our two sailing barges Centaur and Pudge. We have no paid staff and the Trust is managed and run by volunteers.

2022 sees Pudge celebrating her 100th birthday and we hope that she will be sailing sometime during the year after her restoration is complete.
The programme for the period April to July can be found below and further dates for the remaining part of the year will be added in due course.

Thank you for your support.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss any sailing opportunities/charters for 2022 please email: or contact David Gibson on 07840 862685

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.
