Announcing our Annual Boat Cruise!

This year we have a much bigger boat! We will start at Westminster Pier at 7pm, cruise both directions of the Thames and arrive back at about 11pm.

I have kept the price very low, at just £11 a head. Places will fill up fast, so watch @london_web to get announcements of when spots open. Seats are limited to 140 people.

Pizza will be provided, bring cash for the bar.

Agenda:
- Board "The London Rose" and socialise: 7pm
- Boat departs: 7:15pm
- Enjoy the sights of the city whilst munching pizza: 7:15pm
- Lightning talks by leading web companies and startups on a range of web topics: 8pm
- Break to enjoy the sights of either Putney Bridge approach, or Greenwich (depends on voting): 9pm
- Either lightning talks below deck, or scenic chat above deck with sunset in the backdrop and a beer in hand: 9:30pm
- Arrive back at Westminster Pier around 10.45pm - 11pm.

Vote for the direction you’d prefer us to head towards – either Greenwich, Putney or a bit each way. A photo of the boat can be found here.

We'll see you on board! Please watch the map for this venue, it is not correct. A better map is: http://www.londontown.com/LondonPC/sw1a0aa.html

    Great fun, good conversations & lovely folk. Only negative was that the talks were very hard to hear unless you were right up the front. Thanks for organising!

    Same here, was wondering if I can give away my ticket (for free)?

    September 15, 2011

  • Nathan O.

    I agree, but I can't seem to change it - may be cached - so use this map instead: http://www.londontown.com/Londo...­

  • Tim S.

    Location's a bit ambiguous. I assume its SW1A 2JH down by westminster tube although the map link has a mark my Waterloo bridge?

    @Oscar, I've just posted a ligtning talks discussion here: http://bit.ly/lw-lightning-talk...­ Feel free to contribute. It's a fairly loose format, and all depending on what people wish to discuss. The night is mainly social, so no talk is set in concrete, but facilities are there if people wish.

  • Yoosuf M.

    @j exactly, wish to be there without the jacket
