Supporting Project Redsand
Exclusive offer for trips and a chance to board the Thames Estuary, Redsand Fort, make a booking at
www.xpilot.project-redsand.com. X-Pilot and Project Redsand working together to preserve Britain's heritage.
X-Pilot is now helping Project Redsand with the restoration of the World War II forts in the Thames Estuary, seven miles off Whitstable. Boarding the forts may be possible on trips to view the Maunsell Forts, weather conditions permitting, but is not for the faint of heart!
Most recently X-Pilot helped with Red Sands Radio Revival, a 10 day broadcast from 14th - 23rd July 2007 and again on 4th - 13th July 2008.

Havengore Education and Leadership Mission
X-Pilot has also worked with H.E.L.M (the Havengore Education and Leadership Mission) conducting children's educational river trips of the Medway in conjunction with the local education authority, partly funded by the National Lottery.
We had the pleasure of meeting children and staff from Parkwood Junior, Hempstead Junior, All Saints Primary, St Margaret's Junior, All Hallows Primary, St Benedict's Primary and Featherby Junior schools in the Medway towns.
All the children were a delight to have on board and particularly enjoyed their chance to take the helm of X-Pilot under the Captain's supervision.
At the bottom of this page is an example of artwork by children inspired by their trip aboard X-Pilot.
We are now able to offer educational trips on a private basis, so if your school or club are interested please contact us for the full details.
Thanks to Keith, a fisherman, who kindly sent us a wonderful photo of X-Pilot out on a school trip
