senator Posted April 15, 2010 Share Posted April 15, 2010 Easter seems to have been a resounding success for the first Salty Bottom meet that actually involved boats and it is now not long till Whitson. Southwold is at the moment the destination that has been floated but owing to limited mooring availabilty it is intended to do this one after the bank holiday so not arriving there until at least Tuesday afternoon. Very loosely it is intended to take a run down spend a couple of days enjoying the charms of Southwold and then run back. We love Southwold for its quintesential english seasideness. (should have posted this from pc with spell check) It is not everyones cup of tea but offers lovely walks. A nice beach, plenty of old fashioned family fun and a really nice atmosphear. It is also somewhere that needs the weather to work. The run down is not challenging but it is enjoyable and Southwold harbour holds the same degree of fear as Breydon water does to many broads boaters and to be honest holds about the same degree of difficulty to the HP charged mosters that make up the salty bottoms as Breydon does to a hire boat. The Baily Bridge replaces Krackens and the vicious tide replaces the monster waves but if timed correctly and armed with a bit of knowledge it is a fairly simple operation. It would be a good idea to get an idea of how many are thinking of going along so the harbour master can be warned of a possible onslaught.
