Impressive .

What do you reckon it will be like come a busy weekend next summer with lots of boats held in the basin ? I think some good value in sitting and watching it all with the tide running and the wind blowing ?

Ive been thinking about that as well, judging by the behaviour of many people it will be an interesting site, saying many people I really mean the usual suspects who go down holes bay three abreast in large powerboats trying to overtake the yachts. From what ive seen the majority of sailing yacht owners tend to be more courtious and take it easy when approaching the bridges, there are a few people who try and overtake everything in view and can't seem to keep their boats in position.

Personally speaking im intending to avoid any time the bridges are in the up position as I can go under when they are down and less stress experienced.

I reckon there will be a few angry words and a few scrapes on a busy weekend in the summer.
