Our goal is to continue to restore and maintain Lynher to a commercial licensed standard in order to offer sailing activities, voyages and events along the Plymouth waterways.
In line with the philosophy of the extraordinary Charlie Force (see article below), the present owners of the barge see themselves merely as guardians of the barge, with a solid community of interested and passionate people alongside.
The formation of the Lynher River Barge Community Interest Company (CIC) was an obvious step in the Lynher journey. The CIC owns and operates the barge and any surplus from the commercial operation is re-invested into the provision of educational activities for the riverside communities.
