Boatshed Brighton's Intrepid Dan and Squeezebox's Beaching Adventure!

Monday, 03 December 2018

One of my favourite places to visit is St Valery sur Somme. It has a challenging approach requiring navigation between fifty buoys zig zagging in shallow water up a ten mile estuary to the town harbour. You have to get the arrival time just right to avoid running aground on the massive mud banks either side of the narrow channel. There is a pretty ferocious flood and ebb tide. The whole area is a renowned nature reserve.
