Afternoon and welcome to the Ships Blog. This afternoon we welcome Ipswich Haven Marina and their cruise in company. Everyone will be meeting in the Shipwreck for a meal at 6.30pm sharp! Sunshine in the harbour but a strong SW breeze blowing making locking in a bit tricky. The duty lockmaster is being careful to lock the boats through a few at time to reduce the risk of any damage to the boats. Forecast for next week is characterised by the winds gradually getting lighter, overcast Monday but getting better as the week goes on.
