Few More Pics

Heres a few more pics of our run around Sheppy today, having left herne bay around 09:00 we headed out around the Whitstable street bouy and into the Swale estuary stopping for the death burger challenge at kingsferry bridge. From Kingsferry we headed around to Queensbourgh and into the medway, onto Garrison point for a quick look and out into the Thames Estuary. After a quick look at the wreck of the Richard Montgomery we set a course for Redsands towers where we narrowly missed Mike taking out a group of nurses on a pleasure trip around the forts, from the forts we headed for Whitstable for a sniff inside the harbour and a quick run back across the flats brought us back to our start point at Herne bay harbour.

Great trip out with a total of 77km covered two death burgers eaten, and lots of coffee and tea consumed.

What time were you out?

I came up on the MCA Osprey from Dover in the afternoon on route to MDL Chatham for the HMS Cavalier 60 anniversary celebrations today.

If your about tomorrow, (Monday) the crew along with a couple of aux's are going back to Dover and should pass you at about 1030-1100. Give the crew a wave, they are a nice bunch of guys.

You can't miss the boat, it is the 9.7mtr Halmatic Pacific 26 Cabin Rib.

As Daniel will be at sea by now, I will answer your question on his behalf;

The wreck is that of the "Richard Montgomery" which is approx 1.5-2kts from Garrison point at Sheerness, situated at the mouth of the Thames and Medway Esturies.

She went down during the war and was carrying quite a few thousand tonnes of explosives/bombs etc. These are still in situ as it is deemed by the Royal Navy too dangerous to move them. It is inspected annually for safety and a report is made to the Ministry of Defence and various other agencies.

David B may be able to tell us more as he is nearer to it than I am and being a lifeboatman would be able to recount some horror stories I should imagine.

Daniel: I am shore based in the Medway area today, some one else (lucky s*d) is going back with the boat

Hope you have had a good day by the time you get back.

Thats a pretty accurate description of our Islands main attraction !!!
Point woth noting in particular is the clearly marked exclusion zone around the area. For those of you using radar it will clearly show as a shape of a five on a dice and for those who do not have a Radar the mast is clearly visable with the exclsuion markers around its perimiter just off the main shipping lane.
