Despite a cloudy start, the mood on board was sunny side up. The catering was excellent thanks to the captain and crew, who served one of the best boat trip lunches I’ve ever experienced. Followed by lashings of superb wine. It was a fitting occasion to remember Harry, which Mike Waters conducted with a one minute silence. Mike Carn then followed with a toast to his memory. After role call, it was announced that there will be a Christmas Ball this year. If we book a table for ten early then tickets only cost €90 each. Normal price is €120 per person. As you can see from these photos, much fun was had by all.
