If this Thames Estuary container ship is approaching you fast from starboard do you quickly dash across it to gain the upper hand? It's 190,000 tons, 300 metres long travelling at 9 knots. Don't push your luck. #thames #northsea #tides #estuary #sailing

It has been raining rather heavily in the Thames Estuary in the last 10 days. There were 10 litres in that dinghy at least. The weather is definitely changing into autumn. @gillingham_marina #medway

To cross the Thames Estuary you have to feel lucky and pass striking distance (literally) from the biggest haul of unexploded bombs since WW2.  There are not many other ways to cross it. Then you have to deal with 7m tides, shifting sandbanks, huge mudflats and sudden changes in the weather conditions, not the mention the cargo traffic to London ports. But what will trigger the almighty explosion? Nobody knows. Do you feel lucky? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/aug/17/fresh-fears-ss-richard-montgomery-wartime-wreck-kent-explosive-munitions #estuary #northsea #thames #london #tides #weather #river @gillingham_marina

Dunkirk veteran up for restoration at @gillingham_marina . Barely out of the water historical boat Llanthony is up for a complete refitting by a private owner. Quite a sight to behold already even though it has a long way to go. #chandlery #dunkirk #medway #thames #estuary #northsea #restoration #classicboats

@katediamondink is the official artist for birds and fish of the Thames Estuary Expedition. Kate prefers to draw species that are threatened with extinction like the curlew which she drew recently for us. Kate can be found some Sunday’s in Herne Hill Market selling her beautiful drawings of threatened species in postcards and T-shirts. #birds #estuary #thames @gillingham_marina #northsea

To cross the Thames Estuary from Leigh-on-Sea to Queenborough you have to zig-zag between
unusual local channels
shifting sandbanks
sticky mudflats
three shipping lanes
a WWII minefield
powerful tidal currents 
surprise gale force winds. 
By the time your sort them all out you’ll be excused if you have forgotten your destination.  The return will be very similar anyway and you’ll be glad you can tell the tale #estuary #thames #northsea #tides #filming #documentary #apocalypse #heartofdarkness #contad #hitchcock
