I go from Lowestoft to Shotley
Thursday - 20-50: now in Shotley marina. Picture is of Orford Ness on the way.
Very tiring passage - left at 10-30 - tied up here by 19-45 - too long! It was hard work because there were wind shifts through 30 degrees - sometimes a fetch - sometimes directly into the wind. Getting over the shipping lanes was fine but exhausting because it needed a lot of navigation and concentration. I managed to get in through the lock without problems and am tied up nicely.
