Hi Guys
My offer on Achilles 9m Tangara of Orwell has been accepted, she is currently on the hard at Fambridge and will stay there over the winter, but next year I'm hoping to bring her a bit further up the coast, does anyone know of suitable cheap swinging moorings in the Brightlingsea, Mersea or Walton on the Naze areas?

At West Mersea ring Peter Clarke's yard on 01206 385905 for a start. They do have moorings now. If not they may well suggest other mooring owners, usually up Salcot for depth.

Also ,at Brighlingsea I would ring the Harbour master for help. I think the yacht club only have moorings for B.O.D.'s. Only know Titmarsh mariner at Walton back waters. A number of people moor down the Blackwater at Stone where there is good deep water and off Marconi sailing club.
