Felixstowe to Snape Cruise April 29th

We are going for a cruise to Snape Maltings for lunch on Saturday 29th April.

Anyone interested in Exploring a bit of the Suffollk coast and the rivers Ore and Alde will be more than welcome to come along.

The Rough Plan:

Launch at Felixstowe Ferry slipway (10 for the day) or meet us on the way out of the Deben about 11:30 ish

Cruise up the coast into the river Ore, quick blast in the ski areas, look at the birds and arrive at Snape Maltings for lunch in the Plough and Sail Pub.

High water at snape is 15.25 and its springs so there will be lots of time for lunch and to look round the maltings galleries etc. www.snapemaltings.co.uk/

Return to Felixstowe via Aldeburgh Yacht club for a beer and another play in the sea.

Everyone welcome, Please PM me if you would like to join us.

Will

check the steering!!!

The MAIB report in to the rib accident on Loch Lomond said the steering had been dripping for months then it was used with very little fluid and gave up the ghost, threw the boat into a hard turn, throwing the passengers out the boat.

Try your local Pirtek dealer, they are hydraulic specialists and will be happy to help for less cash than a marine place! Try here
