Boat party thrills loyal In2Touch participants

The fourth annual In2Touch Boat Party set sail on the famous River Thames recently. The event was offered to the teams, players and supporters involved at all six of London’s O2 Touch venues.



The annual In2Touch Boat Party is a way of thanking all those involved for their continued support and efforts in making touch one of the most played summer sports in London.

For the first time, this river cruise was held between the spring and summer O2 Touch leagues, to take advantage of the British summer. What a night it was! With record-breaking temperatures reached during the week, all 250 available places on board were snapped up very quickly. This did leave many behind, and on the ever-growing waiting list.

The trip started at Tower Pier, where everyone gathered to get on board. Heading east down the River Thames, the boat took us past the O2 Dome and towards the Thames River Barriers – and back. Passed along the way were the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, The Cutty Sark in Greenwich and the Tower Bridge under full light. The evening was warm, clear – and the two viewing decks gave a 360-degree view for all those aboard.

Alan Munday, had this to say about this year’s Boat Party: ‘Thank you In2Touch for organising such an amazing evening, you definitely know how to put on a party. To bad it’s only once a year.”
