Sadly one (37ft Rother) hasn't been able to make it, we had a last additional vessel but she's not made it either. Sarah Ann Austin is based on oulton broad so she'll slip in quietly in the morning.

A great day was had by all! Many happy people enjoyed a tour around Charles Henry and Laura Moncur. All the boat owners are keen to do it again next year so we've booked up for the 11th of June next year.

Donations on the day raised £132.57 for the Thames Class Lifeboat Trust towards the refurbishment. Thank you to everyone who came for your support, it is truly appreciated.

Scott
