10th / 11th August - Cruise in company to Brightlingsea
Fancy joining a few other PMSC Members for a nice sail with the tide down the coast, an overnight stay in picturesque Brightlingsea, and a trip ashore including dinner at the highly rated Yachtsman’s Arms?
Not got a boat? Well chat up your friends and get them to invite you aboard!
On the Sunday an early HW offers the chance to carry the ebb back up the coast with plenty of time for a leisurely lunch at anchor in the Stour or Orwell, before picking up the afternoon flood tide back up the Orwell.
All skippers are of course responsible for their own navigation and the safety of their vessel and crew, but the following information may be useful:-
Saturday 10 August - HW Brightlingsea 20:57 BST
Sunday 11 August - HW Brightlingsea 09:41 BST
On final approach call ‘Brightlingsea Harbour’ on VHF Ch. 68 (mentioning ‘PMSC group’) for berthing instructions and assistance with tying up.
Mooring fee from £15 per night depending on LOA, and the water taxi £2.00pp each way - operates till 23:00. For Brightlingsea Visitors Guide go to:
