Cruise Notes: Planned cruise to Stangate Gate Creek with Annette & Mike. Departed from Chatham and took a steady cruise at 7 knots out in to the Medway estuary, turned into Stangate and anchored half way down the creek on the starboard just off of an outlet marked by stakes. Remained at anchor for some 3 hrs having lunch and afternoon tea. Just after the tide turned we lifted the anchor and headed back to Chatham on a rising tide. Made the normal foul up of reversing into our berth. :-)

Enjoying the sunshine at anchor.
