bride gets rescued
Dartmouth's new bride, Lizzie
Helyer, has raced in Tall Ships and sailed across the
Atlantic, but probably has never been as close to the rocks
as she was on the Friday of Regatta. For several years she
has lodged the crew of the cutter from HMS Victory when they
come to Regatta for the Classic Boat parade, so it seemed a
good idea to accept the offer of a sail. Unfortunately seven
foot waves and a wind that caused the cancellation of
regatta sailing, allied to gear failure, resulted in them
having to be towed to safety by the RDYC safety boat
Patronas and the Dart inshore lifeboat after they had come
to within 20 feet of the Mewstone.
3. Small News
Did we have a great
time? Yes we did!
We tried to capture the events of the Port of Dartmouth
Royal Regatta and starting last week at the top,
following on in this issue starting at the top and
finishing at the bottom are most of the events we were
able to cover. There was so much going on that we
could not see it all!
We don't do Gossip
Girl stuff, but Inspector Paul Morgan surprised and
delighted everyone by using Regatta to announce his
engagement to Caron ! Congratulations Paul and
Caron! xo xo
Why not come and visit Dartmouth?
