1.  Regatta Special

The weather was kind to us as you can see.  Our Guardship was HMS Quorn and is a Hunt Class Mine Countermeasures Vessel, 60m long with a beam of 10m and a displacement of 750 tonnes. The largest warships ever constructed from glass reinforced plastic, the Hunt Class ships perform the dual role of sweeping and hunting in one hull. The ship carries a crew of 45, many of them clearance divers whose job it is to swim to mines in order to place explosives. However, the ship also has a mine disposal system consisting of a remote controlled submersible. Two general purpose machine guns, along with a 30mm and two 20mm guns mean that HMS Quorn can also function as a patrol craft.

You can see even more pictures on our Regatta website, we recommend you take a peek, you never know, you or a friend might be in one of the many photos?  Click here to see it?  you may be amazed at the pictures from 2006/7/8/9 as well, have a look ?
