Had to laugh today. We were hauling up the sails on Spray this morning when a gang of youngsters turned up on assorted sail boards and kayaks. A whale of a time was had by all, capsizing, jumping off their boats, swimming around, re-boarding their craft only to jump back in. All under ten, apart from one Dad. To cap it all as they fooled around they bellowed out a fine chorus of Christmas carols. Life was good, we could only laugh at their antics and join in the carols!

That's magic Peter.

Despite not being parents we love to see kids being kids - boisterous - noisy - having fun.  Of course light-touch supervision/safety are always needed.  It's the scrotes on their own in a gang that are dodgy and a danger.

Must also put in a good word for the organised groups of scouts and sea scouts who are always great to encounter.

It was good to see the youngsters out swimming too. We see quite a few adults doing their David Walliams impressions as seriously swim around the Broad.

Re Sea Scouts and Sea Cadets. Not good news from this end of The Broads. One local Sea Scout Group has moved off whilst our local Sea Cadets are under serious pressure. Whilst not a Sea Cadet I have long helped and kept an eye on my local troupe, their boat-shed is only a couple of doors away. Yesterday was the first activity this year, a few adults, and I paddled round to say 'hi' and see what was happening. Big demise in numbers which is such a shame. There was a pulling regatta on the Broad recently, no local entry. Was a time when there was a waiting list for our local Cadets, not now. Be such a shame if it was to fold.

We saw similar yesterday on Surlingham broad, two classic broads cruisers rafted together and a whole bunch of what looked like under tens clearly having a fantastic time, kayaking and swimming. Lots of laughing and shouting, lovely to see Smile

Best Wishes,

I'm curious as a newbie regular visitor to The Broads, what people think
about swimming. I've seen both BA and at least one Hire boat company
just say "don't swim it's too dangerous".

I'm really up for a swim but have yet to see anyone who wasn't 19 years
old and slightly drunk doing it.

(Quite impressed that one large group yesterday had actually brought a
long plank for the walking of...)

Swam last in Surlingham (Bargate) broad some 10 years ago. The older I get, the colder the water gets!

Broadland boat owners club had a Christmas Prty up at Bramerton on the 22 June!
