12-13 Aug - Cruise in company to Ramsholt

Do you fancy a weekend cruise up the coast in company with other PMSC Members and a night in the beautiful river Deben? Whether you are a Deben veteran or a first timer 'over the bar', it is a short but very satisfying cruise, with beautiful scenery, excellent scope for birdwatching, and the option of a meal on Saturday night at the picturesque Ramsholt Arms pub. Last year nearly 30 Members and guests enjoyed an excellent meal at this very special riverside location – an opportunity not to be missed!


The proposed itinerary (weather permitting) is:-
Sat 12 Aug (HW Harwich 15:29 BST) – depart the Orwell and 'push the tide' up the coast in time to cross the Deben bar before HW and carry the flood up to Ramsholt, with plenty of time to relax before going ashore by dinghy for dinner at the Ramsholt Arms. Prior arrangements will be made with the Harbourmaster for moorings to be available including overnight.

Sun 13 Aug (HW Harwich 16:06 BST) – depart Ramsholt in time to cross the Deben bar by HW-2 and carry the flood down the coast and into the Orwell, arriving Pin Mill around HW. Those keen to avoid pushing the tide to the mouth of the river may opt to depart Ramsholt before LW and await the flood at Felixstowe Ferry where there are usually plenty of vacant moorings for a short stay to await the tide.

The bar across the entrance to the River Deben bar changes every year – latest pilotage information can be found at http://www.eastcoastpilot.com/downloads.html

If you would like to join in please email rick.kirkup@btinternet.com (or phone 07973 248083) giving your boat name and probable number of crew, so that we can let the HM know how many boats would like a mooring and also how many of your crew wish to eat at the Ramsholt Arms on Sat 12 Aug.
