Masts down for maintenance

Greta Maintenance

Greta has been in a Faversham whilst owner-Skipper Steve Norris and helpers carry out various maintenance tasks.

The 2017 sailing season will commence in May and depending on weather conditions end late September or mid October.

We sail from the South Quay of Whitstable Harbour.

We are always looking for assistance from sponsors, benefactors and helpers so please get in touch with Steve Norris if you would like to help keep this historic (1892) Thames Sailing Barge sailing around the Thames Estuary.
