Speedwell of Rhu Ship's Log

19th of June 2010 - Up River

Position Map
Crew : Helen and Andy
Destinations : Ipswich Haven Marina.
Distance : 8 miles

It was very windy again and at the moment it doesn't look like this will change before next week. We headed up to the Royal Harwich Yacht Club in a squall and Force 6 wind across the river. There was no room at the Inn, there or at Woolverstone next door, so we ended up in Ipswich. A valuable opportunity for Helen to practice power handling through the lock in strong winds. We also did some more provisioning and worked out which charts we will require for Scotland.

Now we're off to celebrate my birthday before heading North again soon....(possibly!)
