18 boats, including two new boats (Anna Jayne and Curlew III) took part in a rally hosted by the National Trust at Dapdune Wharf on the River Wey in Guildford.

On the Saturday many boats were used to instruct members of the public in how steamboats work and provide rides. After this there was  an evening cruise with the National Trust Staff and Volunteers followed by a meal. On the Sunday many boats cruised upstream for lunch before returning to pull out.

Many thanks to the National Trust staff at Dapdune Wharf who helped organise and promote the event as well as offering us such a warm welcome and use of their site.

More photo's of the event are now available on the photo album page and a video is available below and in the video gallery.

Boats attending: Anna Jayne, Bruin, Cherub, Chimera II, Curlew III, Genevre, Lady Selsey, La Melinite, Little Lamb, Lizzzeee, Margaret Morrison, Mazeppa, Sans Son, Sarah Jane, Surta, Ursula, Zara Finn
