By all accounts the sailing and anchoring adventure to Bass Pool by a group of Wardley’s sailors was a success. Five boats in all dropped anchor and it really was a great sight to see so many!
- Fifteen sailors
- Seven boats
- Two dogs
Joined in the fun.

As the Sailing Captain, and with the powers invested in said role, I hereby announce the winner of the ‘Let’s go anchor in Bass Pool most comic sailor’s outfit‘ competition: –
Where the prize is a bottle of :-
And the winner is:
Nick ‘Nimrod’ Martin
It was a close run thing, all members sported at least one item of comic value, and everyone looked great on the day!
But special recognition must go to Nick for the following reasons: –
- He came with a choice of hats, a classic skipper’s and a classic pirate’s hat, and also sporting a groovy ‘Treasure Island’ style themed T-shirt.
- The first boat to drop anchor in Bass Pool.
- Brought along the juiciest looking beef burgers (no contest here!).
- And whose anchor light shone the brightest, and later on helped a trio of Wardley’s Sailors row back to their boat in the wee hours of the morning.
Please can we all give Nick a loud round of applause.
