Naming of Hamble Sea Scouts new yacht Spirit of Mercury and Old Boys dinner postponed (again) until Saturday 11th September 2021.

March 8, 2020

With all the uncertainty about the ending of restrictions surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, two events planned for this year have been postponed, once again (from May), until Saturday 11th September 2021.

The first, subject to final confirmation, is the naming ceremony for Hamble Sea Scouts new yacht, Spirit of Mercury (see pictures below), for which the Mercury Old Boys Association made a major contribution from the remaining funds. This will take place during the day, when we plan to include a pub lunch.

The second, is a dinner, being arranged by David Hathorn (4587) , to take place that evening in the Royal Maritime Club in Portsmouth. All those with connections to the Mercury will be welcome at both events.

Obviously both will be kept closely under review and are dependent upon the Covid crises developments. The Advisory Group will confirm details of the arrangements when things become clear and also email all those we hold email addresses for.

For any information email us at; Closer to the time we will confirm all the arrangements in the hope that we might also arrange some lunch.
