Thames Party Boats have teamed up with Solar Radio to bring you this 5 hour Valentines Soul Cruise.
Saturday 15th July 2017 sees the 42nd running of this prestige and unique London fun rowing event. Set up in 1975 by a charity called The Transport On Water Association (TOW) with the backing of Members of Parliament and Members of the House of Lords.
The race consists of about 12 teams of between 4 and 8 members who drive (steer and row) 30 ton barges over a seven mile course for about 90 minutes from Greenwich to Westminster Bridge. (Thames Barge Driving website, 2016)
Race Starts Approx 13.30 at Greenwich and Finishes at approx 15.00 at Westminster.
Passengers will embark and disembark at Greenwich.
A spectacular boat race up the River Thames, it attracts over 330 crews from all over the globe. The Great River Race appeals to every level of competitor! From serious athletes who like winning, to those who enjoy laughter, fancy dress and charity stunts, it's a great fun day out for both competitors and spectators.
BBQ will be available on board.
Exact timings TBC in 2017
To maximise the viewing opportunities for passenger boat spectators the Viscount will follow the course as far as Hammersmith Bridge before mooring up and waiting until most of the Race has passed. Then it will steam through the fleet to Richmond, where it will tie up at Richmond Landing Stage to watch the Race pass by as crews summon up the energy for the final push to the Finish. You then can disembark and enjoy a short stroll upriver to join the crowds around the Great River Race bar .
Note: The trip will last approximately 3.5 hours
Tickets for this event are available direct from The Great River Race website here.
