    Depending on your starting point , it may be worth considering Walton on the Naze. Not too far from the station with plenty of cabs available. Sheltered deep water moorings .

    Also, nice and close to the wind and sea. When I was there a few used to come down from London by rail. You could even keep an old bike padlocked.

    It is never too late to have a happy childhood. Buy a boat.

    This isn’t an easy question to answer.

    Before I had a car, I kept two successive boats at Walton on Naze and then at Woodbridge; both lovely places. Walton station is an easy walk to the WFYC, where you can keep a dinghy, and in the case of Woodbridge, the station is right next to the hard and you can keep a dinghy on Eversons’ pontoon or on the Deben YC pontoon. But in both cases allow a mile of dinghy to get to the deep water moorings.

    Orwell YC is much nearer its moorings, but it’s a fair step from the station.

    I have no experience of Debbage’s, so I can’t comment. But nearest the station.

    I worked in one of the Felaw Maltings buildings (overlooking Debbages) for three months... Nothing would tempt me to put a boat at Debbages... Parts dry and the stench is awful, plus the seagulls....

    Could you use the ferry from there to get over to Shotley? That would add Shotley sailing club to the list.
