Club Cruise to Brightlingsea 29th April 2023

Great cruise to Brightlingsea last weekend, here are some pictures of the event.

All of us in the Indian restaurant, Tony sitting down after helping to scrub off Holly & Holly on the posts.

The 3 yachts on the pontoons, ‘Holy’, ‘Amanda Louise’ and ‘Manic’ the 2 motor boats ‘Revolution’ and ‘Tiki’ going into the Marina.

Many thanks to Len & Amanda for making the arrangements and ferrying us in the flubber back and forth.

After a scrub Holly left at approx 20.30 for home via the Spitway, making it to the Roach at 01.30 hrs, to anchor for a few hours kip and home to NF on the tide Monday morning after a rousing onboard breakfast.

Unfortunately for the first time ever at Branklet we fouled a rope on the river bed with the anchor. ( managed to raise it and cut it through ).

Manic left on Sunday morning and Amanda Louise leaving on the Monday morning along with the motor boats.

Well done all for a great weekend.

Cheers

Nick
