Cruise Notes: Took Lorraine & Keith on a short cruise into the Medway estuary. At Long Reach Lorraine took the helm and carried out some practise boat handling, turn, course changes & stopping exercises. Turned and headed back for Rochester but on reaching Rochester Bridge found the water levels to be quite low so decide to abort the run upriver. Returned instead to Chatham.
