Tidal Trips

Flotilla trips to Newark, the Wash and Hull


Providing there is sufficient interest we are planning to take flotillas of six boats to Newark, the Wash and Hull over several weekends during the summer months. Venues can be changed to meet customer requirements. Dates to be displayed on the Burton Waters notice board and Facebook page.

For those cruising on the tidal River Trent for the first time we suggest the passages to and from Newark. Instruction will include planning and how to use the tides for a safe passage. Experience the large locks at Cromwell and Newark. Overnight stop would be at one of the Newark marinas.

Those with a little more experience, learn how to work the tides and read the charts for a safe passage to Hull along the River Trent and Humber Estuary. For those making this interesting passage to Hull Marina you would meet the large sea going coasters on route and pass beneath the Humber Bridge.

High-speed rib trips are available for a one-day passage in the Wash.

Places for all passages are limited so book now to avoid disappointment. If you wish to join any of these flotillas contact Peter on 01529 415720 or 07977 476938.
