On Saturday 28th October our Chairman Dieter Jaenicke and Marine Training Manager Darryl Cooper joined the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club (RCPYC) in welcoming members of the GBR Blind Sailing team to the club’s annual “Pickle Night”. The night is a traditional naval gathering for Petty Officers and Ratings, following the more formal Trafalgar day, celebrating the return of HMS Pickle from the battle of Trafalgar carrying the tidings that the British had triumphed but at the cost of many sailors including Lord Nelson.
