We like to say a huge thank you to the Minter Family Fund, who, through the Essex Community Foundation, have kindly donated over £1800 for the purchase of two new outboard engines.  These will be put into use on Swallow and Amazon, our two Drascombe sailing boats.  This is really super news and we’re delighted to be able to continue operating our boating and sailing activities in confidence that we won’t be caught stuck in the mud and not able to get home!
