Sail 4 Cancer Family Riverboat Day

When family life has been taken over by hospital appointments and treatment schedules, it’s good to take some time off and enjoy a proper family day out. Our Family Riverboat Day is the perfect opportunity to do just that!

Our guests will arrive for a welcome snack (late breakfast?) on the Thames Venturer before setting off down the Thames. Whether you want to relax and watch the world go by, or get involved with sailing the boat and learning about life on the Thames, the choice is yours. Youngsters of all ages will find plenty to keep them occupied on this fabulous boat and everyone can have a go at steering! The Thames Venturer is a specially converted Dutch barge, so in addition to being a really comfortable way to sail the River Thames, it is safe for all ages and also fully accessible for those with a range of mobility issues (as long as we know in advance).

The trip is suitable for all ages and abilities.
There is no charge for participating in the day's activities.
Children under 14 MUST be accompanied on a one-to-one basis by an adult
Children over 14 but under 18 MUST be accompanied by at least one adult per two children.

Guests will arrive at 10.30am and depart at around 5pm.

Dates for 2018:
Saturday 1st September
Saturday 20th October


Some of the lovely comments from the Family Riverboat Day 2017

"Absolutely brilliant day. Everybody was very friendly and welcoming. The boat crew worked hard to ensure we all had a good time and actively encouraged taking part in different activities from steering the boat to throwing ropes and testing the water. For something that may seem so simple, being on a boat going up the Thames, the benefits from being able to relax in a welcoming, friendly and stress free environment is something that needs to be experienced to believe. ” Jamie

“It was nice to have a day to remember with my kids instead of remembering all the bad days after the chemo. My family loved it and it was just what we all needed; the crew were amazing with the kids so it's a 10 out of 10 from me!” Daniel
