Old Mercury Boys Dinner at the Royal Maritime Club, Portsmouth, postponed until Saturday 11th September 2021 David Hathorn 4587

Hello all.  There was an excellent level of interest in attending a dinner, originally planned for September 2020. Due to the uncertainty surrounding the ending of coronavirus emergency I have now provisionally agreed, with the Royal Maritime Club, Portsmouth, to move this to 11th September 2021. This will coincide with naming ceremony of the Hamble Sea Scouts’ new yacht Spirit of Mercury earlier that day. Both events will obviously very much depend on the Covid rules being sufficiently relaxed by that time but we have our fingers firmly crossed. We will update the website as soon as things become clear.

Manly handshakes to all
