Sailing UPdate

The Trust has no more availability for its cruises in 2021 and our sailing season finishes in October.

We would like to thank everyone who has sailed with us this year and made our season a success despite us having to manage Covid. 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.

We will soon start planning our sailing season for April to October 2022 and this will be published on our website as soon as details are known. Next year sees Pudge celebrating her 100th birthday and we hope that she will be sailing at sometime during 2022.

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.
