Well here we are, mid July already! We have had some pretty impressive thunder and lightning during the early hours of this morning. The night duty lock master reported the whole of Harwich Harbour being lit up. Forecast for the next few days into the weekend is a mixed bag of sunshine and showers with the possibility of some more thunderstorms on Sunday morning. This weekend 22nd and 23rd we welcome the St Edmundsbury Yachting Association with approximately ten boats booked to stay with us. Sunday 30th July sees the Harwich Festival of the Sea taking place at the end of Harwich Lifeboat week.
