Waldringfield

The picturesque Suffolk waterside at Waldringfield - River Deben

Waldringfield Sailing Club's jewel of the Deben is the Dragonfly clinker dinghy. Beginning in the late 40s, 45 were built for the club over a 15 year period and there is still an active fleet sailing today. This one looks like its been home to more than one or two gulls but the views here are undeniably pretty. For us the sailing becomes even more interesting as we negotiate the numerous moored craft on our way further upstream. A closer look, just beyond the moorings, shows there's a pub, the Maybush Inn and also Waldringfield Boatyard.

I think if I was there I would sail around the moorings looking at all the interesting yachts, take a look around the Waldringfield Boatyard and then retire to the pub - in that order.
