Eastern Seals Launching Dinner

Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Y C, Lowestoft, Sat 24 March 2012

Our select group of Eastern sailors was augmented by a generous number of our Southern friends – Ken Surplice, Michael and Jenny Mead and friends and Clifford and Sally Miller.

We gathered for another splendid launching dinner at the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club, after a ‘history’ day. Sitting down to dine with our Southern colleagues were – John and Chloe Dinwiddy, Pat and Pam Morgan, Howard and Sally Payne, Mike Edwards, Greg Faux, Lindsay Moscrop, John Harburn, Dave and Alison Matthews and Chris Neale.

Paul and Sheila Ashford brought up the rear, with Sheila bravely hobbling due to ankle problems.

The history was provided by Lord Nelson’s Museum on Great Yarmouth’s South Quay, and his Monument, which is nearly as tall as his Column in Trafalgar Square – even if the latter has rather smarter surroundings! I have seen it many times sailing on my way south from Norfolk, but not from the West.

The Eastern Area Award was not presented at the dinner, as Steve Hutson was off adventure training (or something equally energetic!), but we recognised his splendid efforts in organising us at the Bradwell Y C rally last year.

This year’s rally will take place at the Royal Harwich Y C on 1 & 2 September.

John gently reminded the company that he needed a successor from the end of 2012, and looked forward to a stampede of volunteers to take over.

After a hearty breakfast in the sun lounge (really sunny!) – we went our separate ways: North, West and South, but for once - not East.
