Phil and Steve returned home in Aeolian on Friday 16th July after completing their epic circumnavigation of the UK. During their trip they experienced very poor weather conditions much of the time, which made their circumnavigation even more of an achievement. Well done Phil and Steve!
Sally Taylor writes – A Champagne reception was organised to welcome the boys back, courtesy of Phil’s wife, Helen. The boys presented their wives with flowers as a token of their appreciation.
Several Members went out in the club launch to meet them coming up the river, arriving at about 1.45 pm. There was a small number of Members to welcome them home but the good weather meant that many Members were away on their own boats.
