Shepperton to Sunbury Lock

Considerations for Shepperton Lock to Sunbury Lock

Be familiar with the reach and the potential hazards (See maps below):

Desborough Sailing club – please be courteous when settings off or returning home of our neighbours who may be racing or training.

Shepperton lock - other vessels may be exiting and looking to manoeuvre

Sunbury Lock - other vessels may be exiting and looking to manoeuvre

Shepperton Marina – Be mindful of boats entering or leaving the marina

Thames Valley Skiffing Club – Be mindful of other skiffs turning upstream for home

Sunbury Weir – Be mindful of strong streams at the weirs.

Walton Marina – Be mindful of boats entering or leaving the marina

Desborough Cut Turning points:
     These are sharp turns and potential hazards
     Obey navigation rules when turning or crossing river
     Do not cut the corners as traffic may be coming upstream
