Yeh, I agree. Was this a sailing rally from Amsterdam to London ? What time of of the year did you sail and how cold was that water ? That's a pretty natural wetsuit that guy was wearing.

Must have a have been a rally - in several times up and down the London River I've never seen so many yachts there at once. And definitely summer - the North Sea is not kind! Looks like going back became a bit exciting! A fun video.

From Wisbech to IJmuiden in 30 h sounds possible but depends from wind and your regular boatspeed of course. Wisbech is near Boston harbour isn't it?
IJmuiden is a good harbour with very good facilities and als eay approach.

Wisbech is close to Boston,its an easier harbour to get into than Boston,the sand bank at the entrance to Boston is getting larger.

The dutch coast is between 150nm and 156nm,its an attractive sail as long as the weather is not too heavy

you can get into the river at HW+- 3hours,but you have to book Sutton Bridge 24 hours in Advance.There are Bouys at the entrance to the river for visitors who have to wait,once in the river there is a visitors pontoon where you can wait if needed for the bridge to open.

They are building a new marina at the entrance to the river,it should start next year,there is also wells Harbour which is much nicer and this year they have ploughed out the outer harbour and it is hoped that this will make wells 24/7 acess.Its the one benefit of the wind farms,the wind farm companies have paid to build a new outer harbour at wells,before they built it,boats with a draught of up to 1.6 meters could acess wells at HW+- 2 hours.

If you are thinking of making the sail over,i can get the phone numbers for both wells and Wisbech.

Have you considered the Farne Islands for one of your long cruises?

Thx for info about Wisbech.
That about The Farne Islands sounds good these are the islands NE of North Sunderland isnt it? On the chart I have i see there a possible anchor place, or is there also a harbour?

there are anchorages at Farne and there are harbours close by,also all weather bolt holes at Newcastle.The farnes are beautifull,much better than Lowestoft,there is wild life galore,Puffins,etc and also Dolphins.There is also Lindisfarne(the holy Isle) lindisfarne was the foremost center of Learning in the world at one point,a famous Monk called the Venerable Beed,an individual who is up there with Galleleo,Newton, and the worlds greatest minds,its a very interesting place if you enjoy History and Nature.

Have you ever heard of Grace Darling?,it was at the farne islands where she jumped into a rowing boat and rowed out to save a stricken ship.

Another place that is worth a Visit is Whitby,whitby is the best port to visit on east coast ,i would consider making your run accross to Whitby,staying in whitby for a visit then heading up to the farnes.The coastline North Of Bridlington all the way to the Farnes is fanatstic to look at,from Wells harbout to the Humber its a bit like the Dutch coast,very flat and sandy,from the Humber it starts to change,then from Farnborough head it gets really good

check out these photos,they are from Hunstanton to Farnborough head,unfortuneately when i got to farnborough the weather kicked up so i did not get any further
