A Winter Weekend with East Coast Branch

Successor (John Cooney) embarked five Cambridge University Royal Navy Unit (CURNU) cadets on Friday, 3rd February at Woolverstone for Operation Sea Spray 2 and early on Saturday 4 February in very light winds set off for Rough Towers.

Meanwhile Jacqui-B(Gale Bryan) headed up to Ipswich and ‘dressed over all’ to be host and accommodation boat for the Branch Winter Dinner.
With precision Successor re-joined Jacqui-B from its sortie out to Rough Towers in time for pre-Dinner Mulled Wine on the dot of six. So while the RNSA Members congregated in the local yacht club to hear Captain Richard Farrington’s talk on the future of the RNSA, the cadets were able to achieve flying speed. The two groups then came together for a jolly good Winter Dinner at the Grazing Sheep, which had been specially opened for our resourceful Secretary, John Cooney.

Returning onboard, armed with a couple of guitars we discovered that the cadets numbered some promising musicians amongst them. Led by Cooney we sung our hearts out until the small hours. Fortunately we were blessed with a beautiful Sunday to dawdle back to Woolverstone. Successor discharged a happy bunch of cadets; we will no doubt see more of them.
Thanks to all those who contributed to the fun.
