    We eat there on Saturday, wasn't bad at all. Not Michelin quality but certainly acceptable.

    Thanks for contributions...if somebody could possible arrange for the usual prevailing Essex NE wind to come other than directly from the Polar Regions , it would be much appreciated.

    It still is!

    Perhaps I'm thick, but what is RCC?

    Indeed, which is why I thought the observation interesting.

    I have assumed the Royal Cruising Club, rather than (for example) the Royal College of Chiropractors.

    Is Pye End still around? I only ask because I seldom go near it. If coming from the south, you can almost always head straight for No4 buoy, saving nearly a mile with very little loss of depth, maybe a foot or so.

    I don't know the current situation at the Harbour Lights. We haven't been avoiding them, just that we prefer to eat on board, but the WFYC is good at present.

    If strangers to the area want a flavour of the place, they could anchor at Stone Point and make sandcastles on the beach, or have a lunch stop in Hamford Water and possibly take a dinghy trip into Bramble Creek to see the red seals. This is better near low tide, when you might see about 70 sun-bathing, but a sensitive approach should be made slowly on the opposite side of the creek, where there may be a trip boat.
    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere

    Est 1905.
    We have around 100 motorboats on our moorings(and the odd yacht).
    The really big advantage of being in the club is that everything that is possible to go wrong with a motorboat will have gone wrong with a club boat sometime in the past 100 years and there will be available at least six different opinions on how to fix it.
    Seven of which will be totally wrong.
    Pretty certain some of our members were there when the club opened in 1905, but as they have not been seen moving recently, reluctant to disturb them.
    Alleged that somebody under the age of 60 did come into the clubhouse once.
