Event Type

If you have never sailed at night or would like to practice more, this is your chance.

A quick brief at the ablutions block above B-F pontoon, at 19:00, followed by a night sail up the Orwell. Participants can come about and sail back to their home port or Sail on to Ipswich Haven Marina as part of the Shakedown weekend (book separately for the Shakedown cruise). This is a good opportunity to navigate at night and arrive at a new port safe in the knowledge that a friendly hand is waiting to assist you.

Tides and Timings-(Please remember it is the skipper’s responsibility to double check this information. I do get things wrong!)

15th March, Club Departure Time for night sail 20:00, ETA 22:00, 9.7M, 1:56hrs @ 5kts, Sun Set 18:15.

Hi Mark,
I am going to sail up river in daylight and back to Shotley in the dark so I don’t need a berth in Ipswich marina,
