Bridge 2 Bridge
OYC Club member Peter Hibberd's challenge is to sail a 3m Access Dinghy from the Orwell Bridge to Tower Bridge in aid of the Woolverstone Project.
The Orwell Yacht Club was founded in 1918 and is located at the head of the beautiful River Orwell. Deep water access to the river is via Ostrich Creek which the Club shares with Fox´s Marina. The premises comprise a modern purpose built Clubhouse with car, boat and dinghy parks and is conveniently situated just off the A12/A14. The centre of Ipswich, the County Town of Suffolk is just a mile and a half away. There are excellent communications into the heart of East Anglia and the neighbouring counties of Essex, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.
It is a thriving Club that offers its members boating facilities which are amongst the finest on the East Coast and caters for a wide range of interests tailored to the needs of the keen yachtsman and dinghy sailor. There are extensive moorings both in the River Orwell and within Ostrich Creek.
It is justifiably proud of its friendly atmosphere and of the spirit of independence and self-help that has resulted in continuous improvements to the services and facilities offered to its members.
