Ocean Cruising Club party and award presentation

Date                          Wednesday 16 November 2016

 

Sherry and Dennis Day of Trillium and Elizabeth and I were two of the five boats’ crews to be awarded the Ocean Cruising Club’s Award of Merit, 2016, for the work that we did in Vanuatu in the aftermath of Cyclone Pam in 2015. As we were not able to attend the Club annual dinner in April John and Jenny Franklin have been pursuing us around the globe and eventually caught up with us in Richards Bay. The Club hosted an excellent DIY barbecue evening at the Zululand Yacht Club open to members and other cruisers.
