    Default Where can you get to?

    Looking ahead to next season, it might be useful to identify how many boats could join a weekend meet at different locations.

    Assuming the meet is on the non-tidal Thames, where is the furthest place up and downstream you could sensibly reach in a day from your normal mooring place?

    I will correlate replies on a map so that we can see what venues would be most likely to attract the maximum number of participants.

    To start the ball rolling, I could reach (up)Marlow or (down)Teddington.

    Down Teddington, dont know about up because the last few months was my first back on the thames after about 17yrs, my dad was the commodore of the BMYC at teddington so spent years between the thames & coast, my wife is new to thames boating (shes only just getting used to the locks) & weve only been up as far as clivedon, we are looking to moor either in Penton or Bray next season, just upgrading from a 20ft cuddy to a 27ft Sunseeker not the best for the thames but plan to trail to the coast a few times as well.
    We would be happy to meet anywhere as we plan on going up thames asfar as pos next year

    If the boat's ready - Teddington to Kingston or possibly as far as Windsor if I don't stop at a pub.
