Sailing Barge Matches.
PIN MILL SAILING CLUB
PASSAGE MATCH 2014.
The Barge Match planned for 28th June 2014
some barges sailed in company from the River
Medway to Harwich on that date, to make the
passage to the Orwell ready for the Pin Mill
Match the following weekend.
By general consensus of those sailing, Niagara
set off first, just after 14.30 in company
with Adieu, Edith May and Marjorie.
The first barge to reach Harwich was Edith
May at around 04.25 Sunday morning.
Participating crews agreed that Edith May
should be commended for good seamanship.
