Sounds like a good day Peter.

We're launching in the morning to go and see the mess.

Will be launching at the Camber @9am, if anyone wants to join us.

Great day and evening. Got to bed, only to hear Nos calling 5 mins later cos the yacht anchored next to us had slipped it's front "anchor" point (bow line round half buried log, now submerged!)

Got up and we borrowed Marks sib, retrieved anchor line, and held ashore until they returned. Long story, but the ended up turning yacht stern to beach to use what was the stern anchor as bow anchor.

Deciding that was too dangerous, we paddled out and told them how steeply the beach shelved there, and that they'd probably experience a listing and crashing feeling during the night. They have just started their engines and are moving elsewhere, presumably to anchor in priory bay.

What an end to the day. Looking forward to some sleep without the worry of them next door!

You must have been concentrating on typing that when the revving engine and shouts of' Oi mate are you stuck' started as they ran aground at high tide

Great weekend, will upload some pics and vids when I wake up properly

What a great weekend.
Some pickies...from left to right
Afternoon Tea on Priory Bay
Very busy in the afternoon
It's much prettier as evening approaches.
I'm sure that that yacht wasn't parked there when we left the boats last night!
