UPDATE: 26 July 2020
Dear TSCC members,
Having consulted with members who have recently cruised up river it seems very unlikely that we shall be able to moor at Boveney Lock and so we have revised the schedule so that the first meeting place will be at Cookham on Tuesday 4th August.
Please see the attached revised itinerary.
If you have not already indicated that you would like to join the BBQ at Cookham please let me know asap.
Dear TSCC members,
Further to my email of 23rd June the TSCC committee has convened to make the final arrangements for the “resurrected” 2020 Thames Cruise, the itinerary for which is in the attached Word file.
Please note that the cruise starts on Monday 3rd August and not Tuesday 4th August as previously advised.
We are not able to book moorings so the cruise will be on an un-booked moorings basis with fall-back mooring possibilities in the event that we are unable to obtain moorings for all of us at each location.
During the cruise we propose:
• at Cookham to have an organised BBQ for which we will charge £2.50 a head for half a chicken breast, a premium sausage, half a sirloin steak and some baby potatoes and everyone will prepare their own salads
• at Hurley to have a bring your own picnic lunch combined with the usual games
• at Sonning we are investigating the possibility of booking tables at the Coppa Club for a last night meal together. They have a covered eating section with roll up plastic sides that makes it a semi outside area. We shall come back to you with more details on this.
If you have already expressed an interest in joining us on this cruise would you please confirm that you will be coming, or otherwise let us know as soon as possible that you will be participating.
Please also let me know if you wish to join us for the BBQ at Cookham.
If you are joining us, when you send your confirmation please let me have the mobile phone numbers of all those on your boat for communications during the cruise including any urgent messages if we need to change our plans.

UPDATE 4 MAY 2020: We are very much hoping that this, or an alternative picnic event, may be possible with suitable social distancing.Find out more »
UPDATE 4 MAY 2020: We expect this to go ahead if that is the wish of the participants nearer the time. We do not have to make any financial commitments until very close to the date so we have ample time to see how the situation develops. There are clearly social distancing issues with coach travel and restaurant meals and this creates some level of uncertainty. But it is a long way off and impossible to foretell what the situation will be and how we may all feel closer to the time.Find out more »
UPDATE 4 MAY 2020: We are currently assuming this will go ahead as planned. They have a large indoor space so, if necessary, with a little organisation, some social distancing could be managed.Find out more »
UPDATE 4 MAY 2020: We expect this event to proceed as planned with air travel the only potential issue.
Please see the attached flyer for our 2021 Autumn Cruise in which you will see that Mark and Jackie have put together what promises to be an excellent and value for money week on the Canal du Midi.Find out more »
