All the plans are in place for the Social.

With supporters, friends, crew, volunteers and some who are all four! joining us tomorrow evening, we are looking forward to sharing with you a look back at the season and let you know what our plans are for 2018!

A massive thank you goes to the wonderful Julia of Purpleplum Catering who has been my (Rachel’s) knight in shining Armour to come and help with providing us with a gorgeous array of delectable delights to help the evening underway.

Don’t forget, if you haven’t been able to make the event, we will be sharing the content in the following days so you won’t miss out completely on being able to both support the trust, as well as find out what our plans are for 2018. We still have a few group voyage places available for next season, so do get in touch if you have a group, or a group of individuals that you know could benefit from a voyage with Excelsior and her very special crew. you can find out more about our trips here .

In the meantime, here is an shot of Excelsior on the slips this week as the new plank is in and the painting is being done. You can find out more on our progress of refit here.  We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow, enjoying a Christmas toast and sharing some great stories about a hectic but, as always, treasured season aboard Excelsior.


Don’t forget to order your Christmas cards BEFORE tomorrow. £10 per pack, if you miss out, and if we have any left, we can post them to you for £2 delivery. so drop us a line either by calling 0845 308 2323 or emailing
