A few photos from the week, did I mention the rudder on the dinghy broke, basically the three scews pulled out of the rotten plywood and the gaffer tape parted company, it was repaired with more screws and more gaffer tape.

games were played, darts, battleships etc, breydon was crossed 4 abreast with chocolates and mint imperials being thrown from ship to ship during the passage. once we turned past the yellow post speed across ground dropped to 2.3mph, but we had timed things perfectly and arrived at the ferry inn Stokesby with 10 minutes to spare before sunset. next day it was off to Ranworth, some visited the church. others the pub

overnight it was Sutton Staithe then round to Richardsons at Stalham, for a full crew visit to the museum of the broads, here we spent rather more time than we had allowed for, but it was well worth it.

next up was neatishead plenty of room for 4 large boats here.

then a departure for our overnight stop at Ludham Bridge, we gt in here, but ended up spread over both sides of the river and both sides of the bridge. evening fun at the dog inn

next morning and we headed for Horning, here we extended our stay then headed for our meal out at Acle in the evening.

I visited the shops in Horning and was pleased to find that the post office also specialised in Arthur Ransome books (new and second hand) and purchased a couple of 1948 versions with dust jackets (coot club and big six)

Thanks, great photos. Good to see you all consistently with canopies open in the sunshine. I never did understand people who cruise around on a sunny day with the roof closed.

Great photos. Can you tell me when you moored at Geldeston (village) are there posts or is it rhond anchors ?

Cheers

Rhond Anchors, though beware of the edges of the bank they are quite crumbly and deceptive with the grass, there were some posts, but not proper ones, generally only a couple of inches of post above the grass (just long enough to trip over) they may have been put in to stop the bank erosion. the edge is not straight there, so there are varying gaps between boat and bank, so choose your exit point carefully.

There is one section that has a few posts but only enough for one boat.

Grendel  -  As one of the participants in the 'Rudder' incident, I too would like to see it

Grendel, there has been a multitude of photo's / film clips / Comments on the 'Lads Week' whatsapp group although it is starting to calm down now.   You are missing out here and I ain't sure what I can do about it.
