LOCAL CRUISE & RACE Sat 17 & Sun 18 October

Post by challenge2 » September 20th, 2020, 6:06 pm

As there are only two more sailing weekends left in October we would like to see who keen on a local event on either or both weekends subject to the weather

Please post on this thread if you'd be planning on taking part on this weekend (on the other thread if its that one)

We would like to sail both weekends if possible. Preferably up to the Orwell as the tides are so good. Happy to race if that’s what’s suggested. Paul and Miriam

Wave Dancer is intending to come out to play again in two weeks time. Hope weather settles down again. NB Did anyone else see that the gales last week nearly sank the Harwich foot ferry which was tied up at Ha’penny Pier? It’s out for the rest of the year. We were only there ourselves 2 weeks ago....

We have been to Levington today (by road) and noticed The Harwich foot ferry already ashore outside their workshop being worked on. Let's hope they get it back in operation quickly.
We are also hoping the weather improves for the 17th./18th. We are fast running out of sailing season!

Just to cheer everyone up😟 and I know it's early days but Windfinder's forecast for Saturday 17th
is currently showing 25 to 40 knots.
Let's hope it improves.

Don't worry everyone, it will be perfect weather for the simple reason, I cannot now go. I have been given the 17th. at short notice, for a carpal tunnel procedure at Braintree Hospital. As I have been waiting a long time I could hardly refuse. I shall be thinking of you.

Robin,
Hope your procedure goes well.
You were right of course, Windfinder now showing light winds both days.

Morning all, in the absence of a plan for the weekend and with limited time available Good Rum with crew plan to head up the Orwell to Ipswich haven for Saturday night and return to Titchmarsh Sunday on the tide. Take care all for now, T & M xxx
