Christian Radich is moored out in the river Thames, crew and trainees have to take shuttleboats to the ship. The shuttles will start to go from the ORNC-garden, opposite the regular ticket offices of Thames clipper and City Cruises (see map below) at 1600 on Sunday 16th. If you arrive Greenwich later than 1800, please inform us as soon as possible.
