Cruise Notes: First cruise out to the Medway Estuary on one very hot, still day. Joined by Andy & Anita we punched the incoming tide at a steady 6kts all the way out. Located a nice anchorage spot at Slaughter House at the bottom end of Stangate Creek. Once secure enjoyed a very nice lunch with a glass of bubbly. Having cleared away we up anchored and headed back to Chatham, this time with the tide. A pleasant trip out only marred by the actions of another vessel travelling at speed in the 6 kts speed limit area at Folly Point (mark No.3 on route map) who almost swamped our boat with his wash.
Entered Chatham lock at high tide.
