Hi members!  I have a sailing credit from the boss for two more weeks’ cruising, but it is November so allow time for weather delays and sheltering in marinas.  We have adopted a practice this year of being double vaccinated, maybe boosted by then, and lateral flow test the day before arrival.  David Roberts has kindly agreed to be the mate

Weather permitting outline plan is:

  • Monday on board fist thing in the morning, prepare BB and provision for 5 days, set off lunchtime for Eastbourne
  • Tuesday - Dover or preferably Ramsgate as it is a nicer town and closer to Queenborough/Medway
  • Wednesday - Medway probably Queenborough mooring, possibly anchoring in a nearby creek
  • Thursday/Friday – Chatham (near Rochester historic shipyard if we fancy a tourist day) or afternoon motor sail to St Katherine's dock to arrive 2 hours < HW > 1.5 hours when the lock is open.
  • Saturday - Crew change, for those desperate to get off, will be St Katherine’s marina, plan B being Chatham marina if we can't make it safely to London
