Due to an incident at Oulton Broad Yacht Station it will be closed for mooring until Monday at the earliest.

The same applies for the locks.

I've had a chat with Griff and we're hoping to be able to do the event at Berney Arms.

The situation regarding the event remains " fluid" and all boats are requested to proceed to their planned destinations tonight. A final decision on the venue will be made after all tracts can be reviewed tomorrow morning. Likely venue on a plan b is Beccles on Saturday night.

Steve is quite right, it is now at Beccles. Got to say that I think that is a nicer and more suitable venue anyway.

This change of plan has been brought about by the tragic drowning at the Yacht Station. Arguably an over reaction but totally and completely understandable. To be honest, an amicable and sympathetic solution all round. My sympathies are with those who have lost their friend, equally my sympathies are also with those who have planned for this event and those who are looking forward to it, indeed are travelling at this moment in time. In my view an extremely large pat on the back to the management of the Yacht Stations for their sympathetic decision and support.

The lock has definately been in use today, there were hire boats in the yacht station this morning and the harbour master's door was open.  It was a tragic event with the death of the gentleman involved but was the closure really necessary.  It must have caused a fair amount of inconvenience to all the plans thar had been made for the weekend.

While it was a great disappointment to many not to have been able to go to sea, on what was one of the most calm and summery days - the event at Beccles Yacht Station after a Cruise in Company was truly wonderful.

Richard - the the BBQ really went very smoothly and from those I saw was very much tucked into and enjoyed, the music was good too with a great mix of music and live performance and it was a pleasure to meet so many familiar faces and talk to others I had not met in person previously.

Thanks to Mark for the lift on Secret Lady and to Martin for the comfort of one of his Chairs and company and to Charlie's father for the lift back to my hotel.  It showed how social and friendly members of this forum are with their generosity and friendship.

Finally though thanks must go to Griff who effectively had offered an open invitation to people to come along with him and his crew for a day of boating fun and a short passage at sea.  I'm sorry things did not go as you planned, but nobody could have foreseen what happened in the end to put pay to the salty stuff.  You might feel down because that did not happen, but you gave a great deal of people a sense of 'being in it all together' and having a great time none the less. Well done  Smile

Well despite the unfortunate cancelation of the C in C. Some still managed
to get a salty bottom.  MTB 102 and Humber still went out for an
interesting and fun day at sea.  Unfortunatly Humber had a few engine and
gearbox issues, but all returned safely.

Massive thanks to all involved.....

Great photographs Dean. As an aside your two of the GT6 brought back some very happy memories. I also am a huge fan of The River Great Ouse it is really one of Anglia`s best secrets.

I spent Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning at Oulton broad as we were meeting family there who had caught the train to spend the evening with us and both the lock and bridge were in full operation.
Having to spend ten minutes waiting at the footbridge for boats to come through I was less than amused I can tell you.
I can well understand that holding a BBQ party in the Yacht station would have been out of the question considering but they could have let us through the lock to then travel on to Beccles.
