What a delightful Opening Day we enjoyed on Sunday 9 September! The sun shone, bunting fluttered, cannons boomed and several hundred Members and their guests enjoyed the garden party atmosphere.
Commodore Chapman greeted Members and their guests for the last time and saluted the colouful Parade of Sail lead by MV Lady Hopetoun, a classic example of the grace and style of Edwardian steam launches of her period.
The fleet approaches the clubhouse.
The following boats were awarded prizes:
Best Dressed Boat & Overall Best Dressed - Allegro, Melissa and John Taylor
Best Dressed Crew - Margaret Rintoul, Bruce Gould
Commodore's Award - Forty, Sam Hill.
