An early start due to the tide... But a wonderful 6+ hours out at seeing some of the coast & sea forts & wind farm up close!! Relaxing morning... Plenty of cuppa's... Friendly crew -lovely dogs!! I feel totally chilled after my day out No sea sickness at all-so don't worry if you suffer as in The Greta you won't!!... More

That's what it says on the T shirt my sons bought for my birthday, together with tickets to sail on Greta to the wonderful old WW2 forts some 3 miles out in the Thames Estuary. My mate and I joined this wonderful 1892 Dunkirk veteran Sailing Barge at Whitstable harbour around 8.30, . Owner/Master, Steve and his volunteer Mate made... More

Suhc a relaxing day out. Got there for 11am, parking was nearby and after a short stroll through the harbour got on board. The two resident dogs Alfie and Ludo are delightful and welcome you on board. Steve, the skipper, explains everything and does frequent tea rounds while out on the boat. It really is a calming and relaxing experience.... More

What a great day. The Guy who owns the Barge was a very friendly man, offering tea and coffee when possible. His two little dogs were a joy, well behaved and well trained. We took a pack lunch and a bottle of fizz. Oh I havent had uch a relaxing day like that for a very long time. We saw... More

IIt was a perfect day for a barge trip from Whitstable Harbour. We went out to the Wind Farm and around one of the sets of war time Forts in the estuary. It was so peaceful and quiet out there - it was a very calm day! On the return we were partly under sail and we all sat in... More

We enjoyed a lovely 6hra aboard Greta on a sunny, calm October afternoon. Steve & crew helped my 9 yr old daughter with the near Vertical ladder down the quayside to board Greta. Even though there was little wind the sails were still hoisted & we sailed for about an hour before motoring back into whitstable harbour. Steve was very... More

A strange title you might think but all will come clear. My wife and I saw that the Greta website were promoting a Thames Sailing Barge race from Whitstable, at a premium above their usual price for the trips they usually do touring the forts and wind farms in the Thames Estuary. This sounded like fun so we also invited... More

With the jet stream messing our weather up for so long, it took a couple of attempts to get a date to sail out on the Greta, but it was well worth the perseverance. A warm welcome aboard and we motored out of the harbour. The air was still on the way out to the wind farm. But then it... More

We were lucky enough to win two tickets to sail on The Greta through a charity raffle which Steve the owner had kindly donated. We had a fabulous day's sailing, leaving at 11.30 and not returning until around 6 pm because of a slow tide on our return to Whitstable Harbour. The weather was perfect, not too hot. We were...
