Could I recommend reading of the latest Balanced Seas report prior to meeting with the folk from there at the Fit up supper next week.

http://www.balancedseas.org/gallery/download/946.pdf.

Those not able to attend may like to voice any views here prior to the evening to allow others to raise at the meeting.

Please excuse the spelling error in the title.

Ye Gods. I've read some badly written reports in my time - even probably written some as well but this is pretty awful. You need to read previous reports to understand what all the various accronyms mean and what the point is.

Could someone ask them to spell Mersea correctly please!

I noticed in Old Harry's post today on Scuttlebutt with the link to the RYA that if you click on MCZs England & then Balanced Seas there's a para headed

We also made the following specific comments in relation to particular areas being considered as dMCZs:

# Blackwater, Crouch, Roach & Colne Estuaries – very important area for recreational sailing.

# The Swale Estuary – important boating area.

etc etc

No mention by the RYA of the Orwell, Stour or Walton Backwaters.

The next place mentioned is the Deben which comes under Net Gain.

According to the MCZ interactive map the Deben is under Balanced Seas.
The boundery to Net Gain is about 2 miles along the coast towards the Ore.

I would agree that there seems to be no data in the areas you mention.

I can see that & agree.

I was making the point that the Orwell, Stour & Walton Backwaters didn't seem to feature in the RYA's 'important areas' for the Balanced Seas MCZ.

The Orwell is probably secure because of the commercial implications but the Stour & Walton Backwaters are special to those who sail in this area.
