Well, Hallo Sailor
250 Run Award for Screamer
Finding a new location for the now famous "Posh Nosh" brand is not easy. But Lady P came up trumps again and H5 responded in style.
The evening was a triumph of marketing, planning, organisation and above all culinary skills, mixed with some fortuitous weather, the brilliant service provided by those lovely people at Grebe Cruises and lots of laughs from H5 on top form.
Winner Most Nautical Clown (Hasher) was Pirate Leroy and Most Nautical Clown (Harriette) Mermaid Golden Globes, with honorable mentions for Popeye Fantaaaastic, Able Seaman Shagpile, Cox Blow Felt, Carribean Viking Rapid, Pirate Mo
Mo, Silly Hat Ringer and a trio of Rear Admirals.
The massive not-so-narrow boat took us through 5 locks to Marston before spinning on a sixpence and returning without, as far as we could tell, a single blob of flour to follow.
Meanwhile H5 obeyed orders to share out the prawns as they dined on a buffet of the highest standard prepared by a catering team that included not only Lady P but also Subby, Screamer, Golden Globes and Smiffo, as well as excellent cake from the AWOL Frau.
Screamer was presented with her 250 Run Award and Skidmark celebrated a special birthday by sharing a cake that confirmed she was "Farty" after her lovely daughters had extinguished the candles.
A fantastic evening.
