His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor and Lady Lorimer

As many will be aware the club took delivery of three new RS Quests to add to the training fleet, with financial support from the ‘Manx Lottery Trust’ and the ‘Ramsey Adventure Trust’ (Ramsey Rotary Club). Our joint patrons The Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant General Sir John Lorimer KCB DSO MBE & Lady Philippa Lorimer MBE performed the naming and the Rev David Greenwood blessed them and all who might sail in them. The weather was stunning and a large number of our Instructors, trainees and club members attended the naming ceremony followed by a ‘Regatta Tea’.

The wind was that light a sail looked unlikely but in the end as if by magic a brief window appeared with 3 to 5 knots. Dave Kneale took some great photos from land, sea and air, many thanks to him for giving up his evening. The photos can be viewed at this link – https://www.dropbox.com/sh/5qxnmf4s12ceceu/AACf8nvc2qVLqwxemM2L4Heua?dl=0

MS&CC would like to thank His Excellency and Lady Lorimer for attending and also Sarah Kelly and Sophie Pearce from the Manx Lottery Trust and Peter Hoosen-Owen from the Ramsey Rotary Club.
