Event Type

Join me Mark Abbott (commodore@shotleypointyc.org) for the first cruise of the year. A sail down the River Orwell to Ipswich Haven Marina. This is a simple weekends sailing, a chance to, check the engine, shake out those sails, re-engage with the Club members and help each other with those inevitable Gremlins that appear out of season. Whether you choose to sail on the Friday, Saturday or join us on the Friday Night Sail, Friday we would love to see you. (please book separately for the night sail) As it stands the hospitality restrictions will be relaxed to allow for outside catering.  With limited outside venues around the docks area prepare to cook aboard you boat and if we can get a meal in town somewhere it’ll be a bonus!

Let’s get the season of to a great start with a great turnout to a very relaxed and useful event.

Now confirmed booking Mark with 2 on board for the night sail and for the weekend. We may leave Saturday or stay till the Sunday….. see how the boat is and the wind etc….

Hi Mark,
Gerald and I will join you on Friday evening for a sail down to Ipswich. Not sure if we have a reserved berth there – can you clarify please?
I cannot find details of the carvery – where is it and should I look for details?
Are there plans for the Saturday or is a make and mend session?
Happy to bring Kingfisher back to Shorley on Sunday afternoon on the ebb.
