I can confirm that the boat to Fulham is on!!

The boat will depart from Kew Pier at 12:00, head down river (Central London) for an hour or so before heading back up river to arrive at Putney Pier for 14:30. That leaves a few hours for sampling the watering holes of Putney before watching the Bees make Tarquin, Lily Allen, Hugh Grant and the tall bloke from pointless (quite apt for this particular game chum) cry into their chardonnay.

BIAS are once again supporting this little venture (thank you!!) and details for the boat tickets be purchased via the following link .

COYR!!

Nice one Jim 👍 Just purchased my tickets.

Did we find out if there will be any food on board?

Hello chaps.

Just confirmed that bacon rolls will be available on board!! It would be good to get an idea of likely take up so that I can let the galley know.

Take up on boat tickets has been pretty good so far but please note we will probably just be doing the one boat.

All abooooaard.

Excellent!
Myself and five friends will be interested in the grub and I reckon we'll need more than one each!

2 x bacon rolls please, 1st time doing the boat to Fulham, Kew pier easy to find from Kew bridge? Some sort of steps and river bank pathway I presume? I don't spend much time around Kew, although I will be when we move to the new ground.

No bacon rolls for me thanks. Prefer egg. However, not on boat anyway, due to circumstances.

The pier on the left hand side of the bridge as you cross over the river from Brentford. There are steps either side of the bridge. You won’t be able to miss the mass of Bees fans if you arrive any time from 11:30.

Remember the bar and presume the bacon provision is cash only.

Good point Hobbsy. Yes, it's cash only on board - Bar, Bacon Butties (and the duty free shop if it's open)

I've been informed the bacon butties will be £4 each

Boat ticket sales are going pretty well - over 100 sold, about 50 left.

There will only be the one boat for this one so get your tickets soon!! You know it makes sense.

Booked 6 and seem to remember getting some sort of confirmation email? Or am I imagining that , may have deleted by mistake , I’ve been debited so I know I’ve paid. Pretty sure from previous years no tickets issued and it was a case of being ticked off the list as you boarded. Can someone kindly confirm. It’s an age thing sorry !

Hello Shepperton, you should have got an email confirmation which had two options - one to download and print paper tickets, one to have etickets on your phone. Double check your emails. Any problems PM me or Hobbsy

Quick update on the boat - as of yesterday evening just over 130 boat tickets had been sold, leaving around 30 tickets available.

There will be just the one boat this time.

Don't worry. They're floaty things that go on water. Tried and tested for a couple of thousand years at least. You'll be safe.

Can everyone on the boat Saturday please arrive nice and early (by 11:30) please. I've just had a call from the boat company and there may be a need to leave a bit early because of some river level regulating that may be needed because of recent rain (releasing water at Teddington or something). I'll know more on Thursday and will keep you informed.
