Around London In A Small Boat
Forthcoming Chiswick Pier Trust talk, with Steffan Meyric Hughes
Circle Line - Around London in a Small Boat is a talk by Steffan Meyric Hughes, associate editor of Classic Boat Magazine.
It is taking place on Tuesday 25 September at 7.30pm at Chiswick Pier Trust
In 2009, Steffan took a 15ft dinghy on a rowing and sailing trip around London, using the Thames and the city’s canals. The book he wrote of his experiences, Circle Line, won numerous accolades in the national press. Steffan’s day job is as associate editor of Classic Boat magazine.
Circle Line is a celebration and meditation on the river and all things associated with it. It is filled with anecdotes that are both historical and personal, as well as technical suggestions. From a local perspective, these include sharing tips on navigating Brentford’s unmanned locks, dealing with hecklers from the shore, or ‘shooting’ Richmond Bridge.
Circle Line talks about the logistics, joys and the pitfalls
of undertaking a trip like this.
