Let’s hear it for Yarmouth!
I do not think Dick Durham’s comments about Yarmouth (May 2016) were warranted or fair. A lot of us enjoy both anchoring in a picturesque bay and a comfortable night in a marina. I am a regular user of Yarmouth and I appreciate its blend of modern comforts, friendly staff and relatively unspoilt surroundings. I also frequently overnight in, Alum Bay, Totland Bay and Colwell Bay and it’s comforting to know Yarmouth is close by should I need it. Dick may enjoy his mud berth, but then it’s lucky that we are all different. That’s the joy of sailing. was arriving from the UK, to sail to Spain.
I found a dredger blocking my exit. Instead of moving it a few metres to let me out, they moved it closer every day until it was next to my stern, clanking at all hours of night and day, with workmen using our deck as a walkway through the night. After three days without sailing or sleep I returned to the UK. They didn’t even apologise. You have been warned.
Dick Durham may not have enjoyed Yarmouth but many
