Thank you once again for supporting our now annual Mencap sailing day. Feedback was terrific and as with last year we all thoroughly enjoyed our time with you onboard Alice. The weather once again was kind to us which was a nice bonus.

For one with a life times interest in sailing barges nothing could compliment ‘Father’s Day’ more than a days sailing on board sailing barge “Alice” it was an absolute pleasure in every way; the welcome, instruction and most enjoyable food, all made possible by Alan the skipper and his crew in the most friendly and professional manner. I, and many others have to thank Alan for his devotion to the Thames spritsail sailing barge ; enabling today’s generation to experience what was once a way of life and transport throughout the east coast of England and beyond. Good luck Alan and thank you for a perfect days sailing; enjoyed by a “sailorman” and guests alike.
