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
