I did my Day skipper there.

Check out this site, useful to see the rivers before you go there.

they do get small freigters as far a Mistley so keep to the buoyed channel or proceed with caution







i.e. not 20kts

I ran aground on a sandbank at Mont St. Michel two weeks ago and last month I hit a rock trying to get back on my mooring. My skeg looks just like yours. Don't worry about it; it happens. If you tell the story right people may even think you're way hard.

Can you still moor at Mistley Quay or is it all riverside appartments now? We used to moor at Mistley and walk along the river bank to Mannigtree to go to the pub for lunch. Happy days.

Alan there has been big problems on the quay with a developer fencing it off with ugly 8ft wire

So you cannot enjoy the quay from landside nor can you really get off a boat

locals have been up in arms but so far it is still there; ironically it does nothing for those who actually live in the apartments -dtracts from the view they might have had
