Cruise Notes: With two perfect tides it was to good to miss a chance of a full days run from Allington to Standard Creek out in the Medway Estuary. Departed early and locked through Allington Lock into the tidal Medway. A beautiful morning cruise with our first port of call to our friends on 'Odd Daisy B' at Port Medway Marina for breakfast, rafted up safely and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast with them before setting off once more heading out into the estuary, steady cruise at 1400 rpm with not many other vessels about. Arrived at Stangate Creek and laid and set our anchor then lunch, on a very sunny, hot day. After lunch we lifted the anchor and commenced our return journey upriver back to Allington. Many more sailing vessels about during the afternoon which meant keeping a keen lookout for sailing yachts tacking in front of us, all good fun. Passing through Rochester we called up 'Odd Daisy B' again as we had been offered afternoon tea as well. Again rafted safely beside her while we enjoyed a cup of tea. At 16:30 we set off for Allington lock with an incoming tide and made good time, arriving at Allington Lock with plentyof water beneath us. Passed through the lock then a short trip to our home berth in Allington Marina. A great day out with one of the longest single day trips in the log book.

Cruise Notes: A very special cruise trip into Maidstone to ferry Cymantha and Stewart to afternoon tea at Lockmeadow, a thank you trip for their support during the last couple of months. Trip upriver marred by a stupid stunt by two idiots who decided to drop from Millennium Park bridge directly in front of us. Police informed and left them to deal with it.

On receiving the call that afternoon tea was finished we left Fairmeadow headed to Lockmeadow and collected our passengers then headed back to the marina, passing a very subdued group of youngsters still by Millennium bridge.
