Ipswich Maritime Trust

Another year has rolled by with an excellent record of events at the Waterfront, lectures at the Royal Harwich Yacht Club, a growing membership of 170 and an ever increasing collection of artifacts in Ipswich's rich maritime heritage.

Out Winter Programme lectures will be held at the royal Harwich Yacht Club on the first Wednesday in the month - dates chosen not to clash with the Ipswich Society lectures!

  • 1 October : Brian Kennel/Rupert Marks on the rebuilding of the smack 'Pioneer'.
  • 5 November : Paddy Hazell on 'Orfordness - Bangs, Beams and Boffins'. (A date for bangs!)
  • 3 December : 'James Lawrence - Part III'.

I hope to be able to arrange guided walks to complement some of the Waterfront events. These will be publicised nearer the time at the Tourist Information Centre.

You do not have to be a member to attend our events and lectures. However, the annual membership fee of 5 is modest and worth considering.
