Weather

The English weather can be unpredictable, if it is too unfriendly the boat will not be running. If it is reasonable but possible showers are forecast please bring some waterproof clothing as we are open to the elements. In hot sunny weather a hat and sun glasses are desirable and lashings of sun cream sensible as the reflection of the sun on the water can be very bright and in what seems like a cool breeze your skin can still burn quickly.

What to Wear

It can be chilly on the water, even in the summer, so it is advisable to wear warm clothes and bring a waterproof/windproof jacket. Practical shoes are needed, no high heels!

Toilet

There is no toilet on board. Public toilets are located to the right of Quay Cafe, almost opposite the Marina
