Cruise Notes: Windy day but didn't stop us taking Kerry, Rhys & Ben on a two hour run up river to show them the signs of the Medway. Little bit of spray heading past Cuxton Marina but apart from that no real effect from the wind. Offered our two new crew mates a turn on the helm but both declined the adventure! Turned at Holborough Reach without stopping and pushed the tide back to Chatham. Didn't have to wait go before being called in, moored in the lock on high tide so dropped half a meter to enter the basin. Plenty of help putting the boat to bed.
