East Coast Group: Clacton Air Show
August 22 - August 23
The Clacton Air Show was an excellent opportunity for members of the WOA to meet up informally without a great deal of planning and organising.
The two harbours highlighted for the meet were Brightlingsea and Titchmarsh Marina at Walton on Naze.
On Friday 24th August settled weather allowed for anchoring off the flight line to view the show from directly underneath the fantastic airborne display.
Brightlingsea hosted several visiting WOA yachts including that of the WOA ECG Chairman John Elliot who on the return passage in Water Gypsy bound for Gillingham had a memorable spinnaker run in fair wind and calm sea.
The ECG Vice Chairman Bill Drew was joined at Titchmarsh Marina by four WOA members aboard Fulmar Whistler Rachel and Bill Shepherd and Sue and Mick Veness. They had picked up the flyer from the website and made their way from the River Dart as representing the South West Coast Group. The photo’s say it all.
Patrick Rogers a former WOA ECG and Committee member, now an associate member having become the proud owner of a Moody, joined in at Brightlingsea and kept in contact with Bill Drew, reporting a successful and enjoyable weekend.
