Tidal surge? – no problem!

An interesting paddle for the crew as high tide prediction was 4.0m, but the actual tide was 4.85m. Nearly 3ft over predicted, on top of a 4.0m spring tide. This is possibly the highest viewpoint we will ever get from the river.

However, we would still be on the wrong side of Wilford bridge now if we had carried on, not much head room!.

Therefore the return to the sailing club was a good choice and thanks all for the row. Julian
