HW Hullbridge Sat 5 0333 5.24 m Sun 6 1611 5.24 m so you might find it best to drop down to Burnham on the Friday evening and leave before 06:00 hrs on Saturday morning to sail via the Swin Spitway. Or, for the Raysand Channel route, you would leave Burnham no earlier than midday assuming fair winds.

Due to Covid 19 restrictions the meal in the Colne YC is limited to 30 on tables of 6. Therefore, if we have 10 boats, that means an average crew of 3 on each boat. Some will have only 1 or 2, so others may be able to have 4 or 5 crew max.

First priority for meal bookings will be given to crew sailing around, so seems unlikely there will be any spaces for anyone driving around as in previous years. Please check with me nearer the time, just in case we have any free spaces.

The meal will be booked on a first come first served basis so get your names down asap to avoid disappointment.
