London Calling – Sailing up the River Thames





Our initially shakedown cruise on the new boat requires us from Southampton to London with stops in Brighton and Dover and concludes with a interesting working day navigating the shoals in the Thames Estuary and sailing up the River Thames to get there at London’s Tower bridge and St. Katherine Docks for the London On-H2o Boat Display.

  4. I love it . Nobody sails England, Probably because in the 1800's we blew boats like Belem out of the water

  9. I recently wrote a blog titled "London Calling: Cruise Ships on the Thames", so when I found this video during a Google Search, I couldn't resist watching, especially since I love sailing. I do a little hobie cat sailing of my own.

    This is a great vlog! Frankly, I'd much rather sail up the Thames this way than on a cruise ship. I've never sailed on one as small as yours. All of the scuba dive liveaboards I sailed on when closer to the size of the 3-masted barque, "Belem", of France you past in time frame 4:57.

    I just subscribed to your channel and look forward to following your sea adventures. Best wishes and smooth sailing.

  20. Terrific sail.  Loved watching the entrance to Dover, as I just recently did it also (into the same marina!).    I really love the retractable keel.    That was impressive, but scary, watching you with that beautiful new boat on the sand bar.   It would take me a while to get used to doing that.  Wonderful filming and narrative.

  23. Wow, Paul and Sheryl, very many congratulations on the new boat, she looks beautiful! 👍 Sailing into central London is a dream of ours as Rossella and I met there 13 years ago (on the dance floor of a club in Leicester Square!). To go back there now on our boat with our baby would be a very special experience indeed. We wish you the very best of luck on this next chapter of yours. Fair winds! Chris, Rossella & Emma 😊

  31. Hi Sheryl and Paul,

    What i noticed on your new boat is, you have cahnged your anchor from Rocna to Ultra.
    Were not you pleased with Rocna ?
    Now i have an Ultra 27kg for my Jeanneau DS 49, and i am about to sell it for a new Rocna 33kg.

    May i ask why have you made this change ?

  38. Great Video! I can´t wait for the Atlantic-crossing and videos from the Caribbean. Have you already planned when you want to go across the Atlantic?

  39. Great episode. Just curious why you chose your engine and bow truster controls on your port side or did you have no choice.? Is your lifting keel electric .??

  40. Great boat and video. Can you open a little of the finances of the boat? Do you have some kind of sponsorship with Southerly, how much savings did you have and did you get a mortgage etc? Thanks!
