Morning all and welcome to the Ships Blog. Watch out for the cold arctic blast today and tomorrow as a cold air mass and weather front move south. Next week the weather or temperature at least should improve a little so not so cold. Shotley Point Yacht club have there laying up supper this weekend at the clubhouse in Ipswich Haven Marina. Dont forget the winter lay up forms have been sent out so if you wish to have your boat out of the water over the winter make sure we have the form asap to get it booked in. Your duty lockmasters this weekend are Rob (dayshift) and Richard on the night shift.
