Crossing the Thames Estuary

Workshop Leader: Roger Gaspar

In this workshop Roger will provide an illustrated talk about the options for crossing the estuary including:

  • the likely trends of the sands based on the history and our contemporary use,
  • the choices for routes between the Kent, Essex and Suffolk rivers or heading for the Dover Straits,
  • the assets – readily available information, and
  • the hazards affecting us – shipping, wind farms and the tides.

He will conclude talking on how the sometimes difficult choices for passage planning can be eased in what are unique waters.
