I'm not sure I could describe what was in the bag I took home without a picture though it It was rather amusing listening to Jimbo explain what it was!

So how does that strap-on work Matt?

Thanks for all the hard work by Nasher and co for a fantasic evening with good food and excellent company. The Parsnip and Chestnut soup was one of the best foods I've tasted for years.

Thanks all and a very Merry Christmas.

And so say all of us!

Another memorable gathering of Solenteers this year! Most of the Church regulars were there and thank you most sincerely Nash for doing all the hard work this year! Top Man

Some of the highlights for us included

Arriving on the most amazing cruiser - heartfelt thanks Nauti Buoy and Nick! Beautifully handled by Richard Nauti also. Awesome.

Sipping champagne on the way down the harbour !!! Bit of a difference from the usual gunning past the firing ranges on Merlin!!!! Could convert one to hardboating!!!! Lovely to be joined by Nash and Frances, Davy and Lynn while Paul, Nick and Richard froze on the flybridge

The Lightship itself was a top idea (Pauly)

Frances singing Christmas Carols!

Having to unglue Andy Hightower from the ceiling of the Lightship (always carry the WD40!!!)

Everyone remembering Secret Santa except for a very busy couple (congrats on the babies Nemo and Natalie xx) and ourselves (Jimbo, thanks for the SAR - rescue!!!)

Everyone looking so different out of the ribbing gear! Students all in black tie!!!

Campervan corner!!! You Know Who You Are (Martyn & Ann !)! The Hallidays practising French

Nos and his Celtic Goddess Liz! Those straps could be exciting !

Debs runs 6 miles a day!!!! Just to get away from hubby Hugh Jardon!!! (only jokin Chris )

Trying to think of a speech in the Awards... Thanks ever so much for the Lid of Gold. It will be treasured.

Littlehamptoners represented by Mike C and Sheila

Tales of the Lively Lady from Kevin & Kath. Look out for Kevin's thread soon!

The night was still young but to be sure the students carried things on to Landers while others made more stately progress towards home in the humongous boat.

Thanks again Nash. And Richard Nauti (Helm of the Year) and Nick. True Gentlemen ! Merry Christmas to all and if our slight headaches clear we'll post a few foties.

(Sorry we missed Cowes today Jimbo but we made it to the other appointment Safe trip to Norfolk Tim & Ju. Oh and sorry for writing Crimbo Cards at the table. Yesterday was a mad rush at work! And had Ian (BlackJack) from North Wales; now the Don Quixote of Wrexham, as a guest the night before!!!Thanks for message Anto & Martin. You were missed indeed and hope to see ye soon )

Kathleen & Paul

Folks sorry we couldn't make it last night. Anyway Santa Claus has just called and presented me with a bent propellor, something to do with wrapping a rope around Old Spices prop 20 miles offshore, so thanks for the Rib Tickler Award.

Vivienne was also very suprised and pleased to receive the Bravery Award, for marrying me so thank you and we wish everyone a merry Christmas and happy New Year.

Pete and Viv

Simon, thank you for organising such a superb evening, love the new awards. superb venue, good food, great company.

What was the song the "students" were whaling was also quite amusing sitting back and watching either Hightower or Nos putting their heads throught the ceiling a couple of times.
