On Saturday 15th June, eleven hardy boats set out in adverse weather conditions to cruise to Lapworth Junction and back, expecting a reward of afternoon tea on their return. Their doggedness was repaid by glorious sunshine on the return trip, and lots of admiring glances as onlookers enjoyed the decorated boats. Vanessa won the best decorated boat (mainly for their flashing light!!) and Willow received a special award for their innovative ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’ tableau! Steerers and crew were joined by other members for a fantastic afternoon tea of sandwiches, cakes, scones, fruit, panacotta, tea and coffee ! A great success all round.
