Brightlingsea has always been a favourite on our cruise list for the smaller boats.
The cruise usually attracts at least a dozen crews. The sail to & from Brightlingsea is not too arduous & we do our best to arrange trips to suit tides from Stone. We are often joined by boats from Bradwell marina.
Unfortunately there has been the odd engine malfunction but there has always been someone on hand to offer a tow & no one has been left struggling for more than a few minutes. those not used to pontoon berthing will find many hands waiting to take lines & offer advice.
The evening meals that we always manage to arrange at one of the local hostelries leading to much merriment & social interaction.
