I am very pleased to let you know that your Commodore’s submission of a logbook to the Cruising Association illustrating last year’s GCCC Summer Cruise has been awarded the CA Love Cup for “best log of a journey lasting less than 30 days”.
The Love Cup was originally presented in 1911 to the Cruising Association by Mr John Love, a founding member of the Association and it’s first President. It is the oldest trophy to be awarded by the club.
I would very much like to share this award with all GCCC members and especially those who accompanied ‘Shibumi’ on the cruise - namely Gareth & Isabelle of ‘KiK’; Chris, Denise, Andrew & Margaret of ‘Cadh ‘Ruadh’; Clive, Brian & David of ‘Quickstep’ and Simon & Jorgen of ‘Lacewing’.
I will be accepting the award at CA House in London on March 28th, immediately following Tom Cunliffe’s Hanson Lecture on ‘Ice with Everything’ and just before sitting for the Association Dinner.
Very many thanks to all those who contributed in their own special way to the success of last year’s cruise to Normandy's 'Baie de Seine'!
