Plan to get to Wells from Bridlington

The original plan was to sail as directly as possible from Bridlington to Wells - about 80 miles with some contrary tides and the need to cross the outer parts of the traffic separation schemes off the Humber estuary. I had been warned that going into the Humber would be a - I think the right term is - 'nightmare', with massive tides and disturbed seas bound to get us. So the direct route had attractions and I spent a lot of time with the charts and GPS defining what seemed the best course - in the event the wind and the tides dictated otherwise - good job I had plan B written out as well.

Plan B was to anchor behind Spurn Head.
