Sun shines on Sea Picnic as over £10k is raised for Trinity
Over two hundred people joined Trinity Sailing for the Sea Picnic on Saturday 7th June at Anstey’s Cove in Torquay. Despite the threat of thunderstorms, the ‘weather gods’ shined again and our guests enjoyed a delicious three course seafood lunch by the water’s edge with jazz provided by the Dart Valley Stompers and sea shanties from the Exmouth Shantymen.
The afternoon included an auction of maritime art and a range of excellent opportunities, expertly overseen by auctioneer Chris Hampton, which helped bring the total raised from the day to over £10,000, which is a fantastic achievement. Later on, the famous “Trinity sea & air spectacular” took place in the Cove which saw Bond villain Goldfinger and accomplice Oddjob capture the Trinity trawlers before 007 was flown in be helicopter, with support from a para-motor, to see off the attack, rescue the crew of the tralers and head-off into the distance with Pussy Galore…
The planning and running of the Sea Picnics (now at number 5) are reliant on so many people and organisations to ‘make it happen’ – from our generous sponsors to our suppliers, helpers and key supporters such as our Vice-President Maj. Rayner – our grateful thanks from everyone at Trinity for making this event such a resounding success.
