Brixham To Ipswich
Sailing Holiday Type
Coastal With Day and Overnight Sailing
You will be part of a watch system for any overnight passages on this voyage. For more information about what to expect read
Standing The Night Watch – an account written by one of the crew.
“Food, laughter and space were all in generous supply, as were the opportunities to learn as much or as little as you chose. Thanks Su and John the tapestry of life is richer for having sailed with you.”
Leaving Brixham To Cross Lyme Bay
If the wind is fair Trinovante will head straight across Lyme Bay from Brixham.It is possible the crew will go straight into a watch system and head for somewhere like Littlehampton or an anchorage at the top of the Isle Of Wight.
Another option would be to pay a visit to the river Dart first if the wind is unfavourable and then head off.
Portsmouth, Newhaven, Dover and Ramsgate are other places we might call into before we turn the corner into the different maritime world of the Thames Estuary..
About The Thames Estuary
The Thames Estuary is Trinovante’s ‘home’ territory, it’s where she was built, and a fascinating area.
Steeped in sailing history and tradition it’s one of the last places in the UK where you will see traditionally rigged boats as a matter of course. Fishing smacks and sailing barges race here throughout the season.
In the quiet river anchorages you will hear the distinctive call of oystercatchers and other wading birds feeding on the mudflats as the tide ebbs and flows.
Then as we sail into Harwich we’ll enter the world of busy commercial activity on the River Orwell at Felixstowe, the largest container port in the country.
This voyage ends at Ipswich Haven Marina in the centre of Ipswich.
The photo here shows Trinovante motoring under the Orwell Bridge just before Ipswich Docks.
All voyage notes refer only to possible itineraries – where we sail, the type of sailing and passage lengths and the places we call into will be entirely dependent on the wind and weather at the time.
