Our cruise on the 'Orwell Lady' was a great success and seemed to have been enjoyed by all the members who came along on it. This was despite overcast skies and a very keen wind!
We left the Wet Dock just after 6.30 pm, with most passengers on deck listening to the captain's commentary as we sailed down river to Harwich harbour and Felixstowe docks. On our way back up river, the buffet was served in the saloon and so most of us stayed below deck out of the wind. This was a good opportunity to socialise as well as enjoy some rather delicious nibbles. It was great that the evening was so popular and it was particularly pleasant to welcome some new members who hadn't been to any previous events.
