Southwold – May 2019

15 May 2019

Our fleet gathered at the Berney Arms on Friday 10th May with a forecast of variable easterlies, mainly force 3 with showers.  As James and the support crew gave the briefing, we had hoped the sun might just make an appearance for the passage to Southwold.  It was however the rain that made an appearance and stayed with us just about all the way to Southwold.

By the time we reached Lowestoft the wind was from the south east and was picking up something close to a metre of swell although it didn’t last for long.  By the time we had passed the East Barnard, the swell was insignificant.  The fleet did really well in Southwold, turning at the Harbour moorings to stem the tide.

Then it was a couple of days of relaxation, socializing & shopping for the fleet.  The sun came out and stayed out even if the easterly breeze was slightly chilling.

On Sunday afternoon we departed for Lowestoft and a night in the RN&SYC who kindly prepared a carvery meal for our hungry crews.

We departed in the morning for Great Yarmouth and enjoyed another pleasant run up the coast in the sunshine.
