Tug Day - June 18 2016

Unfortunately, bad weather was the order of the day, being both cold (approx. 15 C), and  rain coming up later!

These circumstances resulted in not all the Club's tugmasters being able to take part, and also, some tugs were not available due to 'operational conditions' and maintenance programmes.
