Stert Island Visit 1980's
It was not uncommon for our avid sailors to get afloat, set off for a day's sailing and finish the day off by returning to Burnham Bay and parking up on Stert Island.
For those who are unaware of what Stert Island actually is it is a low-lying uninhabited island was formed in about 1798, when it broke off from the Steart Peninsula. It is a nature reserve and the island is noted for its birds, including spotted redshank and whimbrel, which have a major night roost on the island. There you go......
Here are our club members, past & present, enjoying themselves and having a barbecue.
They would go aground on the ebb tide, walk ashore and spend the night partying before returning to their vessels and returning home on the following mornings high tide.
