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.
