This match is always well attended, with lots of barges racing through Harwich Harbour, followed by a night ashore in the Pin Mill Yacht Club for the prize-giving event. Sunday and Monday will be an equally leisurely sail back to Maldon Quay. Arriving on Monday around 17:00. Meals included from Thursday
