Join Friday evening for supper and meet your crew and fellow voyagers. After supper enjoy a walk along the Promenade, or visit one of the Quayside pubs. Set off early Saturday and head slowly down river, past Bradwell, Mersea Island and into the Colne. Here we’ll be joined by a variety of yachts and dinghies finishing racing and parading up river towards Wivenhoe where we intend staying the night for the Regatta evening fun and possible fireworks. On Sunday, it’s an early start to head back down river and to Maldon, arriving on the tide mid afternoon on Sunday.
N.B. The weekends itinerary will be determined by the wind and tide. Participation in sailing is voluntary, help hoist the sails and take the wheel, or relax on deck with a book.
