About The Thames Estuary
The Thames Estuary is Trinovante’s ‘home’ territory, where she was built, and a fascinating area for a weekend break.
Steeped in sailing history and tradition it’s one of the last places in the UK where you will see traditionally rigged boats as a matter of course. Fishing smacks and sailing barges race here throughout the season.
In the quiet river anchorages you will hear the distinctive call of oyster catchers and other wading birds feeding on the mud flats as the tide ebbs and flows.
Just a day sail up the coast, you’ll be part of the busy commercial activity on the River Orwell at Feliwstowe, the largest container port in the country.
