Rye is a small town in East Sussex, England, which stands approximately two miles from the open sea and is at the confluence of three rivers: the Rother, the Tillingham and the Brede. It’s a tourist destination, and much of its economy is based on that. There is a small fishing fleet, and Rye Harbour has facilities for yachts and other vessels too.[1]
