Farnes in Nesting Season

A four day trip to share the delights of north Northumberland, almost on our doorstep.

We aim to set off from Royal Quays on the morning of 20th June onboard Lian and return later on during Saturday 23rd. Exploration, anchoring and berthing in interesting, and often tricky, places will be the priority as opposed to mileage. There will be an opportunity for a swim! whilst I stay onboard on boat watch…….

Nesting season is June and you can expect to see hundreds if not thousands of birds. Novices and experienced are welcome, and any novices will be provided with a safety talk before 20th in order that we can get an early start, if appropriate. Cost £250 or two in the forecabin for £400. 20 - 23rd One place left, 13 - 16th Three.

Two More Ocean Yachtmasters

Congratulations to Bill and Liz for successfully completing the challenging RYA Ocean Yachtmaster Theory Course. This makes four this year and I am confident that Bill and Liz will go on for their practical.
