Michael and I went to the Sailing and Cruising Association Laying Up Supper last night. There were about 130 people there for the meal, in the atmospheric Royal Horseguards Hotel. The meal was good quality and the staff were good. The red wine was a bit grim—which is what I’m blaming my headache on today!
On our table: the crew of Astrea (Croatia): Kevin and Barry & Adam, Tony and James, David, Chris and Richard. After dinner, we had an entertaining speech from the commode and a prize giving and it was pleasing that Guy was recognised with an award for our little scrape in Southampton! The awards were followed by the Singing Seamen, featuring our very own Adam, top hat bobbing along. They were very entertaining and topical.
