Perils of Ashlett Creek

Friend Greg sailed to Ashlett Creek, over on the dark side of Southampton Water recently. 

The Flugel seen here at the quay which is only accessible at high water, while the crew made off to the nearby Jolly Sailor pub.

Ashlett is a winding, drying creek and as long as I've been going there not especially well marked. Greg reports a close encounter between center plate and mud, which was a very brief encounter thanks to some assistance from a local passing in a dinghy.

Apparently a great day was had, well worth a visit best to go on a rising tide.
