Spectacular last day!!

There is nothing quite like the Parade of Sail as the wooden boat fleet sails in together. And we were all there! Even raiders who'd been in hospital were back for the beautiful mayhem on the river.
After leaving Howden and rowing or sailing some distance, the smaller boats were then towed so that everyone was at the John Garrow Light by 12.30. There was even time to go ashore in Sandy Bay for coffee on the beach.  Eventually all were safely rafted up in Waterman's Dock and in berths in ConDock or King's Pier. At three we headed to the Hope and Anchor for a farewell party.

A huge thank you to Ros Barnett, for yet again organising the Tawe Nunnugah. This amazing event would not happen without her thousands of hours of work so that others can have fun. Have a wonderful WBF !

Farewell from Nell.
