The following day Trinovante will weigh anchor sail past Harwich and head out to sea. Sailing down the coast Trinovante will be leaving Walton-On-The Naze and Clacton Pier on the starboard side.The aim is to reach the River Blackwater or the River Colne to drop anchor again for the night. By the end of day two you will have learnt how two put up the sails and have had a go at steering. You may even start to feel like an old sea dog.
Sail up the ‘Wallet’ to Harwich. Will we be tacking or have the wind on the beam? Trinovante often moors alongside Halfpenny Pier for the night. The crew sometimes go ashore after dinner to one of the local pubs in Harwich Old Town.
One possibility is to sail deep into the rolling Suffolk countryside along the River Stour or we could spend some time sailing out of the River Orwell. All too soon the weekend is over and it is time to return to Ipswich for a 4pm arrival in the marina.
We usually run several sailing weekends each year but there is only one in 2019 so if you want to book don’t delay. This weekend will soon be full.
