Slipway Nears Completion 24th June

Published by under Club Notices

I was clearing out the Bosun’s Hut this morning with Mike Thomason.

At ten o’clock we broke off to watch the last concrete plank be lifted off the beach and fixed in position at the foot of the slipway.

It was an honour for me to be there with Mike to witness it, for it  is an accumulation of five years work for him.

All members current and future owe him a debt of gratitude for the way he has led the project which is a lasting legacy to the club.

From all the  membership.     Thank you Mike.
