Cruise Notes: Short cruise out to run up the engines and wash off sea weed built up around trim tabs. Departed from Chatham and worked our way through the many sailing yachts out on the Medway Regatta. The girls decided to sunbath on the bow but on turning at Keyhole Reach the change of tide, wind and direction soon forced them back to the wheelhouse (watch the video below). Moored back to Chatham for lunch then up the Rochester before returning to Chatham, by this time windy, heavy cloud and choppy water.

Cruise Notes: Departed from Chatham with a full crew in order to show John & Tina the sights along the River Medway being that this would be the first time they had seen the Medway valley from the water. Headed out first to Folly Point in the estuary where we turned and motored back up river to Holborough Reach. Turned again and headed back to Chatham where we locked in smoothly. Although the weather wasn't great it was a brilliant day especially as my crew did most of the helm work.
