Great news! We are delighted to be releasing our initial 2021 sailing schedule which, for the first time ever, will include a range of free sailing experiences!
We set out on this new path to try to bring the barges and smacks to a wider audience and reverse the decline of the fleet.
Supported through crowdfunding website Patreon, some thought the idea of not charging for our trips daft, but we were delighted with the initial call for support, with over 50 Patrons signing up in the first couple of months.
Our hope is to now push on to our first target of 200 (#BeThe200) which will secure the future for Edith May and Thistle and then on to our major target – 10000, which will secure the future of the whole fleet.
Barge Match Experiences are still £150 (or available as part of the ‘Mate’ and ‘Skipper’ Patron packages) and our Patrons have exclusive early bird access until January 2021, when the schedule goes live to the general public.
We cannot wait until next summer ticks around and look forward to welcoming you aboard.
