|Dinghy cruise and picnic - Snape||Sun 24th Aug|| 14 people in 11 boats set off beating up river to Snape. The journey became increasingly challenging once past Iken. For some it was a first sail to Snape and the need to follow the withies became evident !! Almost everyone experienced the mud at some point. The last few yards at Snape was the most difficult part of the sail - the channel between the reeds was narrow and the wind was shifting around in all directions. Needless to say, not long after arriving it was time to leave. The wind decreased for the return journey and for most it was a pleasant sunny sail back in what was by then a busy river. A big note of appreciation to Sue loch and Barry Cullen in the support boat - they were quite busy ! JP
|Dinghy Cruise and Picnic - Orford||Sat 16th Aug|| 5 sailed in four boats down river to Orford. Andy with his Contender, Dave Pegg and Sue Loch in their Laser Radials and I took my reefed Miracle with a brave friend. A very blowy beat down river meant that our arrival at Orford was swift! We enjoyed our lunch at the cafe before a much calmer and sunnier return to Slaughden. A trip thoroughly enjoyed by all. JP
