some Ideas for the 24th
Ok gang after extensive talks with phil D i have a suggestion to throw at you..... How about we meet at Southend Peir 12:30 - 13:00 on the 24th, this gives everyone time to launch and me Daniel and Mike time to get around to Southend for the meet, the earliest i can launch from Herne bay is 3 hours before high which means 11:20 ish. then once we've all had coffee and cake etc and the standard photo call is out of the way we can decide where to go next.
I'd suggest as we will be in the mouth of the eastury and in convoy we could head out to the WW2 Sea Forts via garrison point and the wreck of the Montgomery, there are two sets of forts we can go to and this means it will give the Essex guys a run out and takes me Daniel and Mike back halfway home, then of course more photos for the forum at the forts.
Plan two if the weather is crappy could take us up into the medway or the Swale for a run up to faversham creek etc, the medway tends to be more sheltered and for the smaller boats means we will find the going a little quicker.
All this is weather depending though.
Let me know your thoughts.
