We will be sailing our yacht Puffin along the coast of Essex and Suffolk, and will be exploring some of the rivers and backwaters there.
This will be a relaxed weekend of leisurely sailing with some interesting inshore pilotage around the rivers, so it will be ideal for anyone new to sailing.
If the conditions are right and we feel a bit more ambitious, we might also be poking our heads out a bit further off the shore and have a look at the Principality of Sealand or the impressive local offshore wind farm.
I plan for us to be staying overnight at anchor or a mooring buoy for one or perhaps even two nights - there is nothing like enjoying the sunset and sunrise on a boat!
If we're lucky, then we might even see some local wildlife!
Hoping for good summery weather, I envisage us making delicious summery foods and eating outside - recipe suggestions of the crew always welcome! If the English weather decides to go very autumnal instead, then we'll change the menu to hearty comfort foods!
And lastly, for those of you who have spottet that not all of these pictures are actually made on Puffin, this trip will be a chance to take nice pictures for future trips :)!
