Old Gaffers

It's been confirmed that Shamrock will be attending the Old Gaffers Association 50th anniversary Plymouth event. This takes place on the 8th and 9th May where, as their website puts it ,"The fleet will be berthed and crews looked after at the very hospitable Mayflower Marina which is well equipped with all facilities.  After merriment on the 8th May a grand parade of sail is being organised for the morning of the 9th before boats leave on their way to the Scillies." Not that Shamrock will be going to  Scilly; though we can live with the merriment bit.
Shamrock is due to depart from Cotehele Quay on the late afternoon tide Tuesday 7th May, as soon as there is sufficient water to clear the dock. High water is around 5:20 pm so this could be any time from 4 pm. The return trip will be timed to arrive back at Cotehele Quay on Thursday 9th's evening tide. Shamrock normally takes two and a half to three hours to complete the trip to or from Plymouth.
