Yes i,d like to second that we all really enjoyed it .It was the first time out for our freinds and i dont think we put them off.I think i shall go back in a few weeks week the chanel markers have been done cause it will be fun a bit like a down hill ski run (slarlum) the markers are so close and tight turns it would be great.I dont suppose theirs any to impose speed restrictions or is that to irresponseble

Snape

I went to snape Yesterday, (in the car). and walked round to Iken where chris had his 'incident'. The snape cruise boat was running to Aldeburgh and had no problem with the channel, we were just the wrong side of one mark - and only another 10 mins from Snape Maltings.

There is lots of space to moor up against the maltings and there is no charge, even if you stay a couple of nights. I took some pictures to prove we can do it, and we will have to go again. Rib exploration makes a change from wave jumping.
