Not sure about the sea though - its always looked a bit rough in previous years but this is the first year with a boat.
I'd be more open to going on the sea if there was another sib around.
i know how you feel.... i need flares and vhf radio realistically for the sea. i am in talks with North Wales Power and Sail - North Wales Power and Sail to book a pb2 course and vhf after .... going sibfest deux so hoping to pick up some hints /tips etc from those going (i believe you can use a vhf under supervision)... but you cant beat safety in numbers and i have a mini doughnut for the kids so could be fun just planing up and down

I've done PB2, day skipper (coastal power) and VHF but this is my first boat.
I've borrowed a handheld VHF (crappy midland one but its new and better than nothing) and have orange smoke and lifejackets, anchor etc so gear wise I'm sorted. There is always a lot of wind along the North Norfolk coast.


Hmm doughnuts...

Last October we were in gt yarmouth during the final heatwave of the year, the sea was as flat as pancake not a wave in site, I only wish I had the boat then! However my trips out from Harwich which is local to me generally involve rain and wind etc....the coast around this way is sure funny!

a lot of launching ramps / places are now not in use because the council wont maintain them ,they would rather you use private slips at a cost ....... beware if you launch from the bank there are bye laws and fines .....

sutton staith there is a slip 5 to launch but some charge upto 25 no matter what size boat you have

beware of broards police speed traps i got a caution for 5.7 mph in a 5 mph zone
