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. Around 2300, the barge heads down river for a night anchorage about an hour away. Up anchor Saturday after breakfast 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 on the afternoon tide 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.

Boarding Details will be sent to you 4 weeks before the cruise date, including where to park for the weekend
