Olympic Park

In April 2012, and as part of my Essex Loop trip, Shoal Waters sailed the Lee Navigation to the Olympic Stadium. She is the only boat I know of to have sailed at the newly built stadium, and in a small way did her bit for the Olympics and the magnificent human spirit that the event imbues. The stadium was nearing completion and there were many waterways closed, or with limited access, at the time.
The Olympic Park, with its Bow Back Rivers, is however now open to the boating public.
  For a map of the park click here or for more information take a look at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park website here
