Felixstowe Ferry Open Meeting 8/9 July

Ruth Johnson - 05th July 2006

Back to the East Coast this weekend for another big event - now the penultimate before the nationals! We are with the OK's again which is usually fun and frolics as they can drink almost as much as the larks can...

There is a briefing around 12 on Saturday with the first race of 2 at approx 1330. 3 races Sunday starting at 1030.

For those who haven't been before, there is limited space in the dinghy park on the right opposite the pub and green, but most people continue past the club and into the boatyard. Launching is down a large slipway, but the tricky bit is the tide - it is very strong on the way in and out so be prepared to launch early to get out in time if the tide is against us.

There is camping in a field opposite the club and a few local b+b's.
