Up anchor after breakfast and Saturday and head slowly down river, past Bradwell, Mersea Island and into the Colne. If time allows, you’ll head up the Colne for a shore visit to Wivenhoe. We find a quiet anchorage in Pyefleet Creek in the Colne for dinner and to watch the sunset. On Sunday, it’s up anchor after breakfast and head back to Maldon, arriving after a Roast Lunch on Sunday.
