The Admiralty Sailing Craft (ASC) 16 foot dinghy is a traditional pulling and sail-training open dinghy, extensively used by Sea Cadet Units and latterly by corporates for teambuilding exercises and competition on coastal and inland waters. The heavy and durable construction ensures that the boat can be simply maintained at minimal cost and is accordingly great value for money. Hull construction is now entirely of glass reinforced plastic with wooden thwarts, bilge rails and handholds and heavy wooden gunwale rubbers. With so many locks on the River Thames, journeys from London to say, Windsor, Marlow, Henley etc. The Windrush 25 launch is the brilliant new boat from Bossoms Boatyard for entertaining family and friends - or maybe just for a couple who sometimes want to leave the busy world behind! As traditional Thames river launch builders, we wanted to take the very best of English style and build, and to integrate the very latest engineering technology, in a boat that would give its owners the pride of owning a classic, but with all the utility and comfort of 21st Century design and materials. The Bossoms Windrush respects the Thames traditions, and is finished to the highest standard, but look closer and it is a lot more than just another good looking river launch. Bossoms Boatyard has the exclusive rights to build the GRP version of this classic long keel ocean sailing yacht, which is designed and constructed for serious and short handed ocean voyages. The Laurent Giles VERTUE II as built by Bossoms Boatyard traces its heritage back to 1936, when Jack Giles designed the graceful gaff-rigged cutter, "Andrillot". Once you travel a short way beyond the confines of the city of Oxford the canal bursts into the countryside and reaches the old village of Thrupp.

Upper Heyford is a mile or so away from its neighbour Lower Heyford, and is famous for being the one - time home to one of the largest US Airforce airfield bases in the country. Continuing north, the South Oxford Canal now enters Banbury, a market town with mediaeval origins, including the famous Banbury Cross, and lots of nice old pubs. In 1961 it was updated to allow construction of the external hull (only) in the then new GRP, and in 1975 (in consultation with Bossoms) a shift to full GRP construction was approved - with fittings in stainless steel and revisions to the sailing rig.
The substantial wood bottom boards are covered with non-slip treadmaster and are fitted with stretcher cleats and moveable stretchers. Thames boat trips, boats and boating, riverside pubs, Thames restaurants, hotels and B & Bs.
A subtly broader beam offers stability when boarding, plus exceptionally generous deck room, locker capacity and seating for a boat of its manageable size. Later she was re-designed by Laurent Giles with a wider beam and raised coach roof (doghouse) to allow more internal space, and finally reworked in 1976 for series production in GRP. It has a gunter sailing rig, a lifting centreboard and rudder and is safe and simple in operation. The majority of fittings are in polished stainless steel and the mast, boom and gaff are in Sitka Spruce. Festivals, wedding and conference venues, party places, museums and live entertainment venues.

The result is stunning - a boat of most elegant character, but with a high volume, highly efficient, low wash hull, optimised for a powerful, reliable and virtually noiseless electric propulsion system (although diesel or hybrid systems can alternatively be specified), and with three different topside configurations - open (Windrush Umpire), forward cabin (Windrush Cruise) and classic mid-cabin (Windrush Weekender). The cabin versions include a head with lavatory, shower and hand basin, and small galley (and will sleep two in style and riverboat comfort). This has all ceased now because the base closed in 1994, and the village has returned to its former tranquillity.
It drops steeply down to the canal from the top road, and has some charming thatched cottages and a little church, before you reach the actual canal and lock.
There was a Civil War battle fought here in 1644 - the Royalist army led by King Charles I met a small Parliamentary force near the bridge, apparently. To commemorate this fact one of the bridges over the canal has been re-named "The Tom Rolt Bridge" in his honour.
