Welcome to the Thames valley Section
Formed in the Spring of 2010 to meet the needs of CA members living in the Thames Valley area. Despite the name, the Thames Valley section is not just about river cruising but, with a partnership with the Gerrards Cross Sailing Association (GXSA), we have a series of talks on Wednesday evenings (October to Dec and January to March).
