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.

Not got a boat? Time then to chat up friends who have and get them to invite you aboard!

 

On previous PMSC cruises Members and guests have enjoyed excellent meals at this very special riverside location – an opportunity not to be missed!

As always all skippers are of course responsible for their own navigation and safety of their vessel and crew but the following information may be useful:-

The proposed itinerary (weather permitting) is:- Saturday 18th August (HW Harwich 1737 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 time to relax before going ashore by dinghy for a group dinner at the Ramsholt Arms.

Prior arrangements will be made with the Harbourmaster for moorings to be available including overnight.

Sunday 19th August (HW Harwich 1832 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
