Pin Mill Barge Match 2019

The 58th Thames Barge Match, hosted by Pin Mill Sailing Club

A great spectator day out where you will be able to get close to the action of a historic Thames Barge Match. 

Departing from Old Custom House in Ipswich, the Sailing Barge Victor will pass through the marina lock gates and out onto the beautiful River Orwell, heading down to Pin Mill for the start of the race. This is a fantastic opportunity to see these majestic historic vessels racing under full sail.

Sailing Barge Victor will follow the racing fleet down the Orwell and into Harwich Harbour and onto the River Stour (depending on the course set), enjoying front row seats for the finish before heading back to Ipswich. 

No food will be served during this event but you are welcome to bring your own picnic. Drinks and snacks are available from Victor's well stocked bar (cash only).
