Saturday 30th April was a great day with the National Maritime Museum handing over their Shamrock shares to the National Trust. Simon Stevens from the National Maritime Museum came from London to carry out the handover with Shamrock's “Ships Bell” being used as the symbol for this. The weather was good and Shamrock had over 350 visitors on board during the course of the day, it was great to see all the different families with the children having a great time doing the treasure hunt, flag making and the painting competition. The person who probably worked the hardest was the lady doing the face painting, it's reckon she must have painted at least 100 plus faces throughout the day.
