Sailing Cambria

During the first few months of this season we will be delivering our work aboard Cambria, something to be relished.

She has just come round from Kent where she is owned and maintained by Cambria Trust and is seen here on our swinging mooring at Heybridge, just below Maldon, awaiting the dry dock for scrubbing off and antifouling.

You will be able to follow her adventures with us on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds.
