A popular Thames calendar that has become an annual sell-out has been published for the third year.

It features some unforgettable moments on the tidal river during the year captured by photogrtapher Rob Powell (below).

He said: "I'm very excited to have produced a Thames calendar for the third year running and I think this is the best one so far. I've again tried to include a snapshot of interesting ships and boats seen on the tidal Thames, with warships, cruise ships, tall ships and more included.  

"The Queen's row barge Gloriana has become a traditional inclusion in my calendar so I felt rather privileged to finally step on board her at the recent Classic Boats Festival at St Katherine Docks to present a copy of the calendar. I also delivered a copy to the wonderful steam tug Portwey which appears for the first time in my 2016 edition.

"The maritime gift shop Nauticalia has decided to stock the calendar in its London branches this year and I'm of course very grateful to all the other retailers who are stocking it again."

As well as in shops, the calendar is available at £6.99 including postage via the photographer's website HERE or £5 plus postage on Amazon - see panel on right.
