Accommodation is in 2 berth cabins with bunk beds. A mattress is provided but guests will need to bring own bedding/sleeping bag. When it comes to the domestic stuff we provide the provisions and everyone mucks in with some simple cooking and of course clearing up afterwards.  When boarding the night before sailing the first meal is Breakfast the next day.

We view our trips as social events where you can sail with old friends and make new ones. We provide a qualified Skipper and Mate together with you as part of the crew. You will have the opportunity, where appropriate, to pull ropes, steer the barge and help with many other tasks under sail. We encourage a team spirit on board so all the crew muck in with the cooking and keeping the barge ship-shape. Provisions and consumables are provided by the Thames Sailing Barge Trust.

The Thames Sailing Barge Trust publishes this programme in good faith, however sometimes itineraries may have to be amended depending on prevailing weather conditions.

You MUST book and pay for your trip in advance.

 

Crew members can board from 1900 on Friday evening, and spend a few hours in Ipswich Wet Dock enjoying its local hostelries and bonding with their new crew mates. Centaur will be leaving Ipswich on Saturday morning with a picturesque cruise down the beautiful River Orwell and enjoy a full day’s sailing, before heading for the night to Harwich Old Town. You will have a chance to explore this fascinating maritime town, which is bursting with history.

Sunday will be a leisurely sail back to Ipswich Wet Dock arriving late afternoon.

All meals included from Saturday morning.

If Covid-19 restrictions are still in place you will be asked to check in using the NHS QR code if applicable for track and trace.

Our priority is your safety and the barge will be fully cleaned before you arrive. A safety brief will be given before sailing. If Covid -19 restrictions are still in place a Covid brief will also be given on arrival and masks will not need to be worn on deck, but should be worn whilst you are below deck during the cruise.
