Our cruise to Holland is fast approaching, we will be heading off this weekend.  Whilst there we will be visiting Amsterdam, Ijmuiden and the Ijsselmere.  We had a fantastic time exploring Holland in 2015 and we are hoping that the weather is as kind to us this year as it was last!


What a fantastic day we had at Water's Edge, Bramerton on Saturday.

It was our first Ladies Training Day and as requested, the sun came out for us (for most of the day). The 4 instructors all did a great job, giving both groups of 12 ladies a taster in all aspects of boating.  Our ladies responded by proving that they can do just as well, if not better, than the men!

We all enjoyed a great buffet lunch after the morning session and the ladies talked about how much they enjoyed the training.  After lunch the remaining 12 ladies headed out for the afternoon.

The weather stayed fine for the training and once again the ladies did extremely well.

After the days training had finished, everyone was in a buoyant mood and ready for a great social evening.  The Water's Edge produced a fabulous meal for us in their BBQ area and looked after everyone extremely well.  A very pleasant end to a very positive day.

Our thanks go out to the Instructors – Chris Billson, Paul Carter, Mark Suckling and Tiffany Howie for their expertise, as well as Lee and his staff at Water’s Edge for the fantastic food throughout the day and not forgetting all of you for making it such a great day! 

We will keep you posted with dates for a Ladies Training Day for 2017.


Work on the new pontoons at Brundall Harbour began last week.  They are being replaced one at a time to minimise disruption. Above are a few pictures of Mark and Kev hard at work!
