North West Passage by skiff
Not the one in the Arctic, the channel round the back of North Binness Island in Langstone Harbour, but it was an exploration nevertheless because we had been informed it was much too narrow.
So we edged gingerly through at high spring tide and it was fine. Then we went to the pavender, and that was exploring new ground too because no-one in Langstone Cutters Rowing Club had been to the Great Salterns Mansion by water before. We found an iron ladder set into the harbour wall, tied the boat to it and went for a quick Guinness before heading back. You can see an interactive GPS track with pictures at Sports Tracker.
