Weymouth - 1st cruise of the season 

A very successful cruise to Weymouth last weekend, the sun was out and the seas calm. Congratulations to Julian for arranging perfect weather and a great weekend away. Thanks Julian.

6 boats: Seahound 5 (Chris & Helen), Mystic Dragon (Bob +3), Ocean Devil (Marc & Lucas), Loujescha (Martin & Louisa and daughter), Black Adder (Trevor & Rick), Watershed (Mike, Julian & Roger).


Our Annual Dinner and Presentation of Awards for 2015 was held onboard HMS Warrior in the historic dockyard at Portsmouth.  It was a fabulous venue and 65 BIBOA members and their guests enjoyed a really good evening;  they were greeted with a champagne and canapé reception on the Officers' half deck, followed by a four course dinner, sat at the crew benches on the gun deck.   The 'Ansome Cabin Boys entertained throughout the evening and everyone retired at midnight back to the Hotel for a nightcap!
