RED LETTER DAY AS HERITAGE SAILS INTO TENBY HARBOUR!

 

On Saturday, August 25th three WWMHS members – Skipper Rob Phillips with  Gareth John and Stuart Asman as crew – sailed our Tenby Lugger Heritage from Hancock’s Yard, Pembroke Dock to Tenby.  They were met by Nathan Spiller, Commodore of Tenby Sailing Club, off Caldey and escorted by Sailing Club members into the harbour.  After a blessing service by Canon Andrew Grace, a reception was held in the Sailing Club for the Crew and invited guests.

 

 Tenby Luggers once sailed the waters of Pembrokeshire from the early 19th Century until as late as the 1950's. MITEC and the West Wales Maritime Heritage Society combined to build and launch the new Lugger Heritage earlier this year. Click here for more

Mr Peter Hancock himself will begin proceedings and the author will be signing copies - to be purchased at £8.99.  Everyone is welcome and the event will give you the opportunity to visit the boatyard and museum and see the work of the Society.
