‘Two Rivers’ Sailing Trips

18th August 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

HMS Victor

Join IMT on a full day trip on the rivers Orwell and Stour

A great chance to get the best views of the rivers Orwell, Stour, and the Walton backwaters depending on the weather, and to help with the sailing of an iconic boat.

Victor was built in 1895 by Shrubsalls at Ipswich for Owen Parry of Colchester, mainly for use in the linseed oil trade. In 1947 she was the last sailing barge to be decommissioned. She was converted to a motor barge in the 1950s, restored in 1974 and refurbished in 2005/7.

Leaving from her usual berth in front of the Old Custom House at 9am.

    • Mid-morning coffee, biscuits and bacon roll
    • Two course lunch with wine, picnic style if COVID restrictions still in place.
    • Afternoon cream tea

Return about 4:30pm to 5pm, depending on the wind and tide.
The cost is £65 per head.
