The latest report comes from Sea Change Sailing Trust who are currently out and about working with 2 barges, SB Reminder and SB Cambria. “On Monday”, writes Hilary Halajko, “we had a sail to the pyefleet in company with Reminder, then a barbie on stone point in a lovely sunset. Tuesday not much wind to so a very early 6am start to take the ebb out of Colne saw a porpoise near colne bar!.anchored just below burnham and then ashore to see “Ted” at the lovely Burnham Rio early evening. Today we came from Burnham over to the Orwell ,we were hoping to go into the Walton backwaters but thought better of it as the tide had started to ebb so currently anchored at stone heaps and expect to go to the backwaters tomorrow. Forecast looking decidedly windy for Friday night and Saturday so our idea of visiting Mersea town regatta has been shelved, who knows where we will go next!?”
Meanwhile, I hear that the barge-boat has now been fixed by Shipwright Morgan and the boys are working out the best way of re-uniting it with the Cambria.
