Tuesday Evening Thames Session

This is the booking page for the Tuesday Thames session.

This session will always run unless there are not enough attendees, there are no leaders available, in periods of extreme weather conditions, or we get advance notice of a sewage discharge into the Thames.  In order to ensure the weekly evening session runs you must add your name to this list BEFORE 5 PM on the day of the session.

Be at the Centre by 6.45pm.  If you are running late or for later changes – text the session leader listed to advise of the change, preferably at least 30 minutes before the scheduled start time.  We generally like to be on the water promptly but we may be able to wait for a short while.
