"Clacton...shining in the sun", 2016
Recorded on board the M. V. Balmoral, first time back in these parts since 2012 and making the three-county trip from Gravesend in Kent, along the Thames to Southend in Essex, out of the river along the Essex coast to Clacton, then the rest of the Essex North Sea coast to Harwich Haven, the Orwell, into Suffolk and upstream to Ipswich.
You can hear the vessel passing through the water, the hum of the engine and the commentary, which tells you where, what and why. Commentary is by a man called Roger who used to have a pleasure boat on Southend seafront .
Recorded about 1.50pm.
