    sorry about delay in answering - not been around much in the last few days, its 18.5 nm to sharpness from avonmouth, requires an amount of local knowledge to get up there, best thing to do is to find someone you know who has done it and go with them / or have them on your boat, its really worth the tirp though.

    Just realised I will be duty Berthing Master during the Docks Rally. I don't know if that is a good or bad thing, since I've always gone off sailing during that period before!

    At least this year noone will be able to pinch all my leccy

    Yes - my first busy weekend! It went well from my point of view - hope it was smooth for the customers [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    And I got out sailing for a couple of days, going out on the free flow after the Sunday shift [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Ah, only just heard about this weekends events! So we'll be walking around there :-). Shame the boat is nearly out of stagger distance all the way down the other end of of the pontoons!
    The most expensive possession you can have is a closed mind. It will cost you all your life. It's also bl**dy stupid!

    I havent sailed up to Sharpness for several years,in fact the last time there was only one Severn Bridge to go under.

    do you know what the locking charges are for visiting boats and also the Canal license for a few days. We are thinking of visiting Sharpness ,Slimbridge and Gloucester later in the summer.

    Also is it neccesary to book in advance or just phone on the day?

    Its £ 20 to lock in and £ 20 to lock out You have to buy a licence from british waterways in glos but they wont let you out the lock at sharpness if you dont have the licence so get before you go
    Last time I was there they were asking if I had a bss for the boat so be aware of that
    Pm if you need more info i give you a bell

    dockers like you to ring the tide before to arrange a ETA, just in case ships are due - dont forget you will need the high level bridge!
