RNLI Blessing Of The Boats Ceremony
Sunday 1st May 2016
Whilst Lyme Regis Gig Club competitive crews were at the World Championships in the Isles of Scilly, members of the club were taking part in the RNLI Blessing of the Boats Ceremony on Sunday May 1st.
The whole ceremony was really mooving for all those who have anything to do with the sea, but the most poignent moments came when 'Revenge' led the Lifeboat out of The Cobb in total silance with the crew's oars in perfect time. A truly majectic sight.
Our club representitives were:
Wreath Party: Jo Whetlor, Joe Kahn, Philip Hayward
Gig Holder: Bruce Kahn
Crew: Coxn Chris Waller, Angela Brooke-Smith, Nicola Moore, Sue Hodgetts, Joe Kahn, Colin Balkwill, Justyn Davies
