Update Spring 2019

I reviewed these notes in April 2019. Note that the "pleasant 15 minute stroll" to Morrisons along the seafront is not; it's a good 1.5 miles and more like half an hour each way. I've posted new charts

17/7 - Sunderland (& my 18th birthday!) – Sunderland is a great stop off port, entrance is marked very clearly in between two breakwaters and there is a massive space between the marina and entrance to take down sails or prepare to go moor up. There are mooring buoys outside the marina but once inside there is plenty of pontoons to choose from. The marina itself is a charity and the staff are very friendly and accommodating.
