This is now open to the public, so if you're mulling it over, better decide soon!

The Saturday River Clyde boat trip is a fantastic opportunity to sail down the Clyde on the Clyde Clipper.  You will pass the two remaining shipyards on Upper Clyde, before disembarking where the QE2 was launched at the site of the former John Brown's shipyard. There will be a live commentary given on the Glasgow to Clydebank part of the cruise. 

You have the option to book for only the boat trip or boat trip plus Titan Crane.  There will be the option to either go on a small minibus from the Titan Crane booking office to the crane or to walk. We are currently working with staff at the Titan Crane visitors centre and West Dunbartonshire Council Heritage Team to have a guided walking tour to give information on the John Brown's shipyard site.  There is a small exhibition centre "The Drawing Office" at the bottom of the crane where you can browse.  Have a look for yourself:

On return to the Glasgow Science Centre, Gavin has arranged with the Friends of TS Queen Mary for those who are interested, a short tour of the boat to view the refurbishment in progress. 

This is a fantastic opportunity not to be missed.

Gavin tells me that more than half the tickets have now been sold, not bad for the first week on sale!

Excellent news  :)

Thanks Malcolm, it is good news that half the tickets for the boat trip have been sold.

The committee are so pleased at the response we have had to the sale of both conference and the Saturday event. However we still need to work on promoting the trip to ensure we sell all the tickets.

Here's hoping there is also the opportunity for forum members to meet for a cocktail or two, just like being on the QE2.
