This event is still in the very early stages of planning and nothing has been finalised except the date, however, the following is the outline of the events to take place:

  • River festival is on Sunday 16th June 2019 (Fathers Day)
  • Chatham Ness is the location
  • Encourage as many ships as possible for high tide
  • High tide is at 14:00
  • Land based activities may include: sea scouts, Border Force/Royal Navy recruitment stalls, Police stand
  • Birdwise stall https://birdwise.org.uk/
  • Fun fair
  • Border Force patrol boat
  • Police patrol boat (in a non marshalling capacity)
  • Mayoral sail past
  • River boat displays

Currently this is a work in progress and there will be more details in April. The link gives some idea of what we’ve had in the past https://www.kentonline.co.uk/whats-on/news/river-festival-to-make-a-splash-184509/

They are hoping to attract as many vessels as possible for high tide for the Mayoral sail past with every boat sounding their horn at the same time and would welcome boats from the DBA to join in the festival.
