- The distance, time and number of locks to transit will be displayed
- a journey starting or finishing at a lock does not include that lock in 'locks to transit'
Distances are actual sailing distances and times are given for sailing at the River Thames maximum speed (5 mph or 8 kph) and at 4 mph, 3 mph 2 mph and 1 mph (all shown in mph and kph)- excessive speed generates undue wash and can cause damage to the banks - moderate your speed when near locks or when swimmers or unpowered craft are nearby
Note: timings are calculated based on 'speed over the river bed' (as displayed by GPS devices) not 'speed through the water' (as displayed by the paddle-wheel type of device).
