Tragedy Strikes as Endeavour's Mast Breaks!

Don't panic! It's not quite as it seems!!

Members may recall that last October we carried a piece about the lovely radio-controlled model of Endeavour that had been put together by Jimmy and Barbara Waters. Jimmy just sent us an update about an incident that occurred recently. Over to Jimmy:

"We took our boats to Maldon for a sail this week. Poor Endeavour had a rough time though. Her rigging got into a bit of a twist in the wind, and the radio intermittently packed up, which sent her adrift and because of that she floated into the hands of some unaccompanied children who thought they'd help and push her back away from the edge by her mast!

Summer Reception 2023

The Hoy Shanty Crew at last year's event

This year’s Summer Reception will be held on Thursday 8th June, at Osbourne Bros on Billet Wharf.

The Summer Reception is renowned for being great fun and an opportunity to chat with Trust members over a glass while enjoying Osbourne’s fine seafood.

Tickets are £20 each with a choice of seafood platter or Fish & Chips.

New Treasurer Sought

UPDATE: A new Treasurer has been found!

Our current Treasurer, Rob Everitt, has decided that after a few years in the role, he intends to stand down – which makes an opportunity for somebody to come in and take over the Treasurer role. Rob says that now we've 'gone digital', the role is far more streamlined and less arduous than in previous times and it's now quite a smooth role (...and trips to the local HSBC bank in Leigh-on-Sea are a thing of the past!!)
