East Coast Group: Ipswich Rally
August 16 - August 18
This rally took place once again from Friday 16th until Sunday 18th August and was attended by Brightstar, Travelling Light, Anne Louise, Kismetty, Woodstock-Hi, Papa, Trumpeter, Falcon, Whistler, Rumours, Windrush, Somerset Lady, Sandpiper, together with Tia and Mistress of Hamford who joined us from the Rotary fleet. The Haven Marina in Ipswich was jam packed full of boats, as were all the other marinas in the area, all attracted by the Ipswich Maritime Festival, this year the theme was Pirates. Many boats were heard call the lock and being turned away if they didn’t have pre-booked berths.
The Friday proved to be rather breezy and wet but we all met in the Last Anchor for an excellent dinner, twenty-nine of us sitting down, having been joined by Martin Ball and his wife, who were staying in a local hotel. The food, wine and beer flowed nicely with lots of chat as old friends were met and new friends made.
