Mersea Week is a ‘family and friends’-oriented week. The sheltered waters of the River Blackwater provide perfect conditions and space to run daily racing with expert race management and courses for all. The week includes many traditions, not least the Round The Island Race (Mersea Island) for the coveted Coconut Trophy (dinghies only) on the Wednesday

Dear Julian
Many thanks to you and your team for an excellent week.

Hi Julian
We very much loved the week, and am feeling somewhat lost now it’s over, but I do have some amusing tales from our races.
I did have some issues included driving back to Cambridge to rebuild the engine on the first evening, amongst other problems but we limped through the week. 
Endurance and endeavour –  ha ha!
Kindest regards and thanks

“Hi Julian,
I couldn’t let the moment pass without writing to congratulate you and your team on organising and running a truly spectacular Mersea Week. Very well done!
I know I speak for all the cruiser fleets when I say how much we enjoyed the racing. Perhaps you would be kind enough to pass on these messages during your debrief meetings. Please also include Brian and Wendy and crew who, on occasions, had five or six different classes of yachts finishing at the same time!
A truly magnificent performance by all concerned and appreciated by everyone, well done once again!
Kindest regards,
Mike Berry”

“Thank you for organising a great week of racing and social events. The committee must have friends in the right place to have arranged  such good weather too!”
