Aldreth – Old West River (Wash prep 4)

A relaxing trip to a fine mooring near to Aldreth on the Old West River. Also experimented some more with the GPS – here is the chart and the log from the return trip on Sunday, which was very windy. (COG = Course over the Ground, SOG = Speed over the Ground, MOB = man overboard alarm triggered). The chart (Harwich to Whitby) is not very informative, but that’s because I was some way from the sea!

I decided that, taking account of wind and stream, I would go through the railway bridge at Ely, turn 180 degrees, and then come back upstream. You can see this on the log (at 1206).

As the Ely group website explains, they use plant and staff to work “out of area”.
