SPRING CRUISE

 

Friday evening 28th April - Monday 1st May 

Cruise leaders: Roger and Lesley Everett

 

N.B. Revised Itinerary Wednesday 19th April

 

Our apologies for the late posting of these revised spring cruise details. Let us just say that there have been a few problems beyond our control. Anyway, here is Plan S (ii)

 

Friday, 28th April

NO official fleet gathering. We shall be at Hunter’s Yard - from about 4:00pm with tea and cake and from about 6:00pm with beer, wine and a rather interesting wee dram that none of you will have tasted before. Vicky tells me that there will be spaces for up to 3 visiting yachts. If you want to join us let me know as soon as possible. (The Yard request a £5 donation from visiting yachts, but there are good facilities including hot showers.)

 

Saturday, 29th April

Leave under your own steam to rendezvous 10:00ish on the far side of Potter Heigham bridge. Coffee and biscuit/cake time. (LW at the bridge is 09:50)

Depart when ready to sail/motor to Horsey Mere. We can then either raft up on the Mere for lunch or we can lunch once moored up in the dyke. I think that might depend upon the weather.  Again, depending upon the weather we could walk to the beach or to Brograve Mill.

You are eating at The Nelson Head. The pub has asked that we use the dining room and that we arrive from 6:30pm in groups of 4 - 6 with 10 - 15 minutes between each group.

 

Sunday, 30th April

A leisurely start to the day. You could read the papers over coffee or sail on the Mere. You could try sailing the full length of Waxham New Cut if the wind is kind. Whatever you decide to do we shall rendezvous at The Pleasure Boat around lunchtime. Moorings will have been reserved for us although we may need to double up, especially if the water level is as low as it was last week. Lunch aboard, or the pub does do sandwiches if you prefer. We will try to organise a walk or other adventure for the afternoon. In the evening you can either dine aboard or the pub can arrange a Thai takeaway for us. They use The Jasminum at Rollesby  (www.jasminum.co.uk). The pub will plate it all up for us and we can use their restaurant.

 

Monday, 1st May

08:30 Buck’s Fizz (served from the flagship). It’s Mayday! And there must be something else to celebrate today. Depart after breakfast for sail/motor to Potter Heigham for bridge transit (LW 11:19) Sail/motor to Womack Water for a lunchtime raft up. Depart for home berths.
