Some pictures of John and Barry’s paddle, walk, pole, punt and sail after the club coaches update meeting. Not usual to leave from Beeleigh (salty side) at low water but great fun. The river bed is all gravel so no problems with the Maldon mud, very shallow in parts were we had to walk and rope the boats. We got as far as the Fulbridge but could have gone a lot further. On the way back with the tide on the rise the wide behind us the sails went up and home we sailed. This is a great paddle when the tide is out and has to be revisited as a club open boat trip maybe out to Northey? Don’t forget your poles and sails!
