    Thanks to everyone who made it to our AGM on Monday 11th February. With nearly 50 people in attendance, it was a great chance to set out our plans for the years and report on progress in 2018. Though 2018 had its frustrations - blue-green algae being the main one - it was nevertheless a good year and we ran 507 sessions involving 1,186 sailors and 917 carers. We also managed three special trips -

    A Wheely secret trip

    A couple of weeks after the trip up the Deben in late September, we took the Wheelyboat round to ' Secret Water '. Arthur Ransome's book Secret Water was published in 1939 and was set in the Walton Backwaters. Ransome himself used to sail the area in the Nancy Blackett and so used it as a location for the eighth book in the Swallows and Amazons series. The Nancy Blackett

    Wheelyboat to Woodbridge

    In mid September we took the Wheelyboat round to Tidemill Yacht Harbour at Woodbridge and spent a couple of days doing trips around the River Deben.
