Sailing in Company 2020

Post by challenge2 » May 18th, 2020, 6:39 pm

As we are slowly getting back to be able to think about getting on the water over the next few weeks it would be the responsible action for skippers to go day sailing with at least one other boat in company

This would prevent a ‘situation’ becoming a problem and perhaps avoid a call on Coastguard or RNLI assets

If you have plans and would like to share these with other members, please post on this thread

Hi Bob. I agree, it would be best to sail in company until things get back to normal so count us in.
Until we can officially spend the night on board we are looking to go out on a morning/evening tide. Next usable tides are from 29th.May (silly o'clock start) until 1st. June. Destinations depending on wind but Pyefleet, Osea Island, or Clacton Pier and back. We will keep in touch nearer the time.
Regards
Rob.

Hi All.
We are intending to go out tomorrow (Saturday) for a daysail leaving the marina at 06 00 and returning 18 00. We will be in company with Amalie as a back up should we hit any "shakedown snags". Any boat wishing to join us will be welcome. Probably heading for Pyefleet for breakfast then heading out either towards Clacton or Spitway before returning to Tollesbury with the tide.

:) Bit early for us!

However as you know we’re intending to go out Tuesday about 0900, HW 0946 (4.6) and returning 2100, HW 2215 (4.7)

Sunset 2102 so it’ll just still be light for getting back in

We’ll intend to be on the leavings for an evening meal by about 1900

That’s our rough plan if anyone wants to join us for a day in the Blackwater

We will be joining you Bob and try to make the most of the opportunity as the tides don't suit again for our draft until the end of June.
Let's hope they lift the overnight ban before then.
