What a Great Day!

On Saturday 21st July we held our annual summer party, the sun shone, over 200 people partied (many in Red White and Blue) and we enjoyed good food, drink and company. To mark "Push the Boat Out Day" in support of our Olympic Sailing team we held a tender sail past and you responded magnificently - a whole flotilla of tenders assembled and proceeded in line past the fuel quay. There was an impressive array of decorations, costumes songs and music and judging the Best Dressed Tender was something of a challenge. In the end the award went to John Bellhouse and Jacqui Davies from Bugle - if you want to admire their efforts part of the "costume" can now be seen on top of the mens' tea-hut!

Graham Anthony and Molly West sang for us, the sun shone and Chris from The Barbeque Chef worked his usual magic with the pig. My mother and son coerced you all into buying raffle tickets and we collected over £100 for the RNLI.

It was wonderful to see so many of you there enjoying yourselves and thank you all for your support. Many thanks (as ever) to Lorna who organised the whole day with her usual immaculate attention to detail and looked amazing (I tried to persuade her to keep the red hair but she wasn't keen). Pete, Jack and Tony did a fine job on the bar while Neil and his wife Crystal provided plates and cutlery to the guests. The whole team did a fine job organising the event and clearing away at the end (thanks to all those who pitched in to help).

We have many great photos and a selection can now be seen in the gallery. (Sorry about the delay but I spent last week in Dorset soaking up the sun.)

Heres to the next event....
