The summer is still going strong and I'm looking forward to some Norfolk Broards sailing soon. This is altogether different from coastal sailing, but great fun and quite testing. Tacking up some of the narrow rivers whilst avoiding the hire boats in fickle winds does provide a challenge.
As a Boat Buddy I've managed to squeeze in a weeks south coast sail, and a day sail in the Wash. The Wash was new to me, lots of tide running and sandbars everywhere. There were hundreds of seals taking it easy. It's an area I've never sailed before, but these days with chart plotters the channels are easily followed and if you are interested in wildlife it's there in abundance.
If you haven't contacted an owner yet you ought to because although you may have posted an advert a direct approach may be just what that skipper is waiting for.
