Crane-in Photographs 2017

The crane in day was a triumph.   We had the perfect weather  –  blue sky,  sun,  sea, and a blooming big crane.

All boats went in the water according to plan.

Club members played their part like in a big orchestra.  Our crane-in conductor was Mike Morris — Wardley’s own version of ‘Sir Simon Rattle’ .

But instead of welding a baton, he dazzled on-lookers with a stream of two fingered gestures towards the sharp eye of a crane driver who had boats hopping off the hard, flying into the air, and splashing back into the water with perfect precision.

Other members played their part too, organised into gangs, they hopped on and off boats, fitted and released strops, hooked and unhooked boats, and with long ropes and a man on each corner, guided them safely to their designated berths.

Thanks also goes to the ladies who with smiles and good humour served delicious sustenance in the form of tea, coffee, and bacon butties.

All in all it was a great day, please see the photos below.
