Bagging A Buoy
Charm proceeded up the River Orwell, still under sail but now in sheltered waters. As we approached The Suffolk Yacht Harbour the Main was lowered, then the Staysail. Our skipper was ready to start the engine but it was not needed. To everyone's delight we glided gently and slowly under Jib and Mizzen up to a vacant buoy and hooked it first time. Now we could watch the passing boats and start to think about lunch. Pictured are Russell Read, Peter Clay, and Fran & Chris Burn.
