The Cruisers run for a Curry

»«Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th June 2009

The now annual Brightlingsea Curry Run brought new meanings to the phrase 'Cruise in Company'; five boats attended, two went a day early, one left an hour before the other two, who left together but went by differing routes; oh well, the journey back would be different...

The trip round for all was in light conditions but glorious sun, not quite last year's storms. Orla, La Mouette, Quick Reflex, Spangle and Ella Rose all made the trip with Arthur and Anne Heasley joining us in the Curry House via wind over tarmac - (Anne was determined not to sleep on a bloody boat for a while!).

The food was good but, like my sailing, a little slow in getting there!

And so we woke to mist in the morning and we all agreed that the best time was to leave when we wanted. So, like the trip round, we all left sort of together, just at different times.

That's RCYC cruising!
