Night Under the Stars BBQ

The night under the stars cruise is a beautiful night in the peaceful River Roach with some yachts deciding to rafting up.

The River Roach runs southwards from the River Crouch. The northern entrance to the Roach is about two miles east of Burnham on Crouch. It wends its way via a number of channels and creeks – Yokesfleet and Potton – down to the Thames estuary via the Havengore lifting bridge, which links the north shore of the Thames to Foulness Island.

It is an unspoilt part of Essex, positively Dickensian in its marshy seascapes, remote and blessed with solitude It is also well known for its seal colony at Yorksfleet.

It has a number of beautiful creeks, Shelford and Barlinghall in which you can spend a summer’s night aboard your boat, listening to the calls of the wading birds. Barlinghall Creek leads to Little Wakering Creek but be warned, some of the creeks are likely to dry out at low water so be prepared.

All boats are invited to join the solstice day race back to Fambridge on Sunday but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.
