We would like to invite you to the launching and naming party for our new club training and rescue boat ‘Capita’ on Wednesday 26 June at 6PM at the Club.
Thanks to the fantastic fund raising effort that started at the annual dinner and has included the winter walk, Will’s talk, French evening and the sale of teas, cakes and lunches along with sponsorship from Capita Fiduciary Group that we now have this new addition to our fleet.
We have invited Capita to visit the club and have a glass or two of bubbly, spray some over the boat and ‘officially’ name her Capita. We would also very much like your company as this has been a joint effort and we would like to thank you too. Drinks and nibbles will be served from 6PM and it would be great to see you.
