ALL ABOUT BOATING – THE DOCUMENTARY

NYA is behind a new documentary video which goes into the best way to buy a boat and the fun that awaits you. An intrepid cameraman accompanied the recent NYA Club cruise to capture the excitement of off-shore cruising.
When completed, the video will be available on this website and to potential boat owners who want to find out more before deciding on a boat. 

NAVIGATING THE THAMES

The Port of London Authority have release four new videos advising cruisers on navigating various sections of the Thames. Four films cover the upper and lower tidal Thames, Central London and the Thames Barrier. They can be seen at www.boatingonthethames.co.uk 


SUCCESSFUL CRUISE IN COMPANY

Our July Cruise to Woodbridge and Ipswich was a great success with twelve boats enjoying cruising, hospitality and companionship. You can see a full report on the Cruising Club pages of the site, with members photographs and comments.
A particular highlight was coming alongside the boat carrying the Olympic torch in Ipswich Harbour, giving us one of the best views of the historic progress of the torch around the region.
We have a smaller cruise to Wells planned for August 17.  If you would like to take part, please see the Crusing Club pages.

BUDDING BOAT DESIGNER

Thomas Cooper, 6 year old son of Chris, got his crayons out to draw his impression of the Haines 360. We have sent the drawings to Haines to help them with future designs. If you see something like this on the water in a few years time you know where the ideas came from.
