Cruise Notes: Departed on free flow from Chatham Marina and headed out in the estuary in the company of Syrena. A strong incoming spring tide made for heavy going as we headed for Queenborough Harbour meaning engine revs were high for the whole trip. Arrived at Queenborough and were instructed by the harbour master to berth on the all tide pontoon. Stayed for lunch and a walk around Queenborough Harbour before setting off on the return trip. The cruise home was on a very unsettled sea and again against the tide, not the most comfortable of trips! Arrived back in Chatham only to find a visiting vessel in our berth and having to move berths again.
