Whilst plans were always subject to the weather, the serviceability of the vessel and health and well-being of the crew, this summarises our cruising intentions and acts as a guide for friends and family who we wanted to visit us at every opportunity as valued guests.

As our plans for individual cruises take the reader to the details of each passage as they happen. 

Section I  - East Coast  – 10th June to 18th June (9 days incl. 4 lay-days)

Movement of Lady Martina from her home base of Horning via Great Yarmouth to Lowestoft for the first simple cruise of the season as a proving trial after a year of inactivity and then on to Ipswich, back to Southwold positioning ourselves ready for the North Sea crossing to IJmuiden.  Thus staying close to home and enjoying the picturesque and wild landscapes of the East Coast of Anglia as a start to the season.  For an overview, see East Coast Cruises 2019
