The Mersey is a "harsh marine environment" and marination is important.
The mud can go from wet near the water, (slippery) up above high tide mark where its dry, dusty and doesn't grip.
HOWEVER in between there is a zone of VERY sticky mud which can make it difficult to avoid "Mud Grab"
I hope to be attending this cruise, so PM me if you want other info.
The Club house and people are a delight. Sunday morning usually involves Burgers / Bacon baps and is included in the cost which including camping usually is about £30. A snip. ;)

Oh what a smasher that was! Incredibly good weather, low winds and SUN.  8)
Full report soon once Sparkle is cleaned down ready for Lochcarron, with a swift lift to check the
skirt, as I felt the odd tug now and then. Its similar to a fish taking a lure.
A small dull tug is not conducive to relaxed skirt health.
The latest Ivanhoff carbon fibre / kevlar cruiser was launched at this event I H 3 it was catchily called.


THANKS must go to Danny Nightingale, for organising and mud sweeping, and patient shepherding.
Thanks ALSO to Phill and Sue on drinks and BBQ duties. What a bunch of great dudes.

More info and vid soon!

Super people. Really great couple.

BBQ Phil, and Sue on the bar. Diamond geezers both.
Hope you feel better soon.
Flymo- yep can see that.
Being Carbon Kevlar it is a nice light craft
Separate lift, 37 EFI B+S thrust.
LOW spray due to lightness.
I presume other colours are available to move away from flymo monicker.
