Who has done something special this year and deserves an award? Something that other people can admire and be grateful for. Not just me or Kath but for other lucky boaters. Well, one couple this year (and other years too) have shown extraordinary generosity in treating other people to special boat trips. Not only do the lucky passengers get special trips, but they also get fed and watered into the bargain. So the Award this year is for Hospitality.
These are not just any old boat trips, but exciting ones, the BCN Challenge, the SPCC Tideway Cruise, and the Queens Jubilee Flotilla rehearsal to name but three.
Well, it’s easy to guess it now, so without further ado, the Herbie 2011 Special Award goes to . . . . (loud fanfair)
Sue and Richard on Nb Indigo Dream
I’m sure you’ll all agree, a well deserved and popular win. Tumultuous applause.
Note to Sue and Richard – this award, I am sad to say carries nothing but Kudos and the grateful thanks of me, Kath, and the many other lucky people you have entertained so generously this year.
