I've done a mini pub trip taking in the maybush at waldringfield and ramsholt arms along the deben, I then got down to Felixstowe ferry and decided to take on the swell on a day when I've not been to the pub!
£25 is ridiculous for a launch, the downside is there's not much competition on the Orwell and it does give some great conditions for testing sea capabilities.
