Post Subject: Route for Thames

I do not understand that question unless you intend to do a one way hire and if so the company should advise. In fact, seeing how the Thames is running at present I would suggest a back up plan, especially if we get more rain. You could easily get stuck on the Thames with the red boards out if we get a good storm during your cruise. If it is yours or a friends boat then its present position will dictate the direction. On balance given the state of the flow I think I would go downstream but if you do it is VITAL that you turn upstream to moor except on lock landings. Tony Brooks
