Wet Wet Weekend

Last weekends 'Wet Wet Weekend' went well with one of the highlights being the 'Splash and Dash', the splash being a quick swim in the river followed by the dash a run around the Cotehele estate. Members of Shamrock's crew were involved in the splash, manning Nancy Belle (safety boat) and both work boats (course marshalling). Thankfully all was quiet and time was even found to shoot a few video clips.

Other weekend attractions included demonstrations from various organisations including the Plymouth Model Boat Club and Saltash Maritime Cadet. The RNLI's display had the twist of allowing children, dressed in all the gear, to throw a rescue line, from a small rescue boat, to whoever was accompanying them, and then pull them to the boat.

Last but not least Shamrock was open for visitors and had a busy two days with some children making two or three visits.
