All aboard the Brigantia once again for our swashbuckling tour of the Floating Harbour with our friends from PROPS.
Kindly and generously sponsored by Long John Silver Trust stalwarts Rich and Mo, we’ll be boarding the ss Great Britain for cut throat ice creams half way round …
The date is Thursday 13th July 2017, meeting at the ferry landing alongside the ss GB at 11.30pm (finish time 1pm).
All friends, Trustees and Patrons welcome, please let vice-chair Mark know if you want to come along.
On a balmy day in July, a hardy bunch of buccaneers from PROPS and the Long John Silver Trust took to the waters of Bristol’s Floating Harbour once again for their annual Treasure Island cruise.
Metro Bus route construction around Bristol Centre meant that two jolly-boats full of PROPS shipmates turned up 20 minutes late and for punishment they had to walk the plank of shame. If it happens next year they’ll have to be keel hauled …
On with the voyage and once again the kind people at the ever busier ss Great Britain gave up some treasure in the form of ice cream for all aboard the Brigantia – a huge thanks to them and Mrs Steeds for providing the Doubloons. And talking of Doubloons, Rich and Mo sponsored the adventure once again and the Trust can’t thank them enough.
Thanks also to Captain Mike of the Bristol Ferry Boat company (and his crewmate Ben) for keeping us safe when we hollered and oohh arrghed at assorted landlubbers.
Roll on next year…
Many thanks to Jo, Nick and Chris for the pic’s.
