Its the second time we've booked with Topsail Charters to see the Clacton Airshow and this time took some friends so I was praying for good weather. We were on Hydrogen but it really doesn't matter which barge you are on its just a fabulous day out. The staff are great and the galley produces good quality food from a fabulous plowmans lunch to a hearty meal on the way home. The experience of watching the air show from the barge is exhilarting - you can't help but smiile! Thank you Topsail.

Hired your boat ‘hydrogen’ for our 25th wedding Anniversary recently. Staff and crew were all lovely. We had an amazing day, our guests loved it as it was so different. We had a few questions on the run up to the day and when we called the office they were extremely helpful.
Would highly recommend for a trip/special event.
Thank you x

What a wonderful day my 88 year old parents had on Kitty. We all enjoyed ourselves. Friendly helpful crew. Amazing cream tea. Thank you ladies.

The only reason 5 stars is not given is a little helpful information such as for the elderly a cushion to take to sit on would of made my parents trip so much more comfortable

We were privileged to spend a day on the sailing vessel, Kitty, for a corporate event. The crew couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. They started with a thorough safety briefing, followed by a delicious lunch meal. There was an open bar with a full complement of options, served by Sue, a most friendly bartender. The rest of the crew were always available, as well.

The weather was perfect, and the crew was able to raise the sails and actually make it into a sailing day, as S/V Kitty was built to do.

I highly recommend a day on Kitty.
