Restored “Baden Powell” to sail on the Ouse again

The Baden Powell as it was …

The rejuvenated vessel Baden Powell is set to sail the Ouse again in August.

Volunteers have been busy working on the boat at Terrington St John and will transfer the vessel to King’s Lynn Docks in July for final preparations.

On an appropriate August tide Baden Powell will come through the dock entrance and into her normal home, the River Great Ouse. There will be a naming ceremony for the boat at the pontoons near Marriotts Warehouse and Hanse House. Lynn’s historic boat will then tie up to a buoy in the public eye off the quay.

In September the first passengers will join the Baden Powell at the pontoons and go up and down the river to learn of the importance of the river to the establishment of the town and its prosperity as a trading port from the 11th Century or before.
