Association of Thames Yachts in West India Dock

Over the year, I do my best to chart the movements of ships in and out of the West India Dock, we have a number of super yachts, naval ships and tall ships. However around bank holidays, the dock is sometimes used for rallies where a large number of smaller ships and boats converge for a weekend of events.

Over this August Bank Holiday, we have the pleasure of welcoming the members of the Association of Thames Yacht clubs to West India Dock for their 62nd Rally.

The Association represents the smaller yachts on the Thames and organise a series of events to encourage boating skills including competitions, training sessions and social interaction with a BBQ and other get togethers.

If you are visiting West India Dock over the weekend, you will have quite a range of craft to look out, the HMS Falken tall ship, the super yacht Ilona and the small yachts are soon to be joined by a regular visitor, the tall ship Stad Amsterdam.
