  1. Funny, I was about to check if this was still on target and here we are. Thanks for update.
    Zone details useful: I was planning to ‘park’ around the MYC race buoy by Mussel Bank.
    Currently watching the weather for a sail over from Essex on Wednesday on Whimbrel – Queenborough probably, then upriver early Thursday, following which a dash for home will be made.
    I’m sure there’ll be many local boats around – wave!
