This weekend the Topsail Team was out and about visiting the Jubilee Sailing Trust and Nimbus Owners Club joining them to celebrate in their milestone anniversaries.
Meaghan and Reina travelled to the Ocean Cruise Terminal in Southampton for the Jubilee Sailing Trust 40th anniversary community party. As close friends of the Jubilee Sailing Trust working with them for several years Topsail was privileged to join them in their celebrations.
Meaghan commented: "It was lovely to meet some of the team who run JST, they are an amazing cause that help so many people that have difficult circumstances, to take a break and enjoy being on the sea as part of a team.
"They help not only those with disabilities, but also disadvantaged teenagers and those suffering from the loss of a loved one. They are a great example of showing that differences between people mean nothing and that was evident at the party.
"Getting to meet people who take part in JST voyages was very moving, they are a great example of how in life your circumstances do not always need to hold you back."
Travelling further West Laura and Mollie attended the Nimbus Owners' Club 20th Anniversary held at SS Great Britain in Bristol.
As guests for the event Laura and Mollie were given a tour of the SS Great Britain, a museum ship and former passenger steamship, which was advanced for her time. She was the longest passenger ship in the world from 1845 to 1854. She was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, for the Great Western Steamship Company's transatlantic service between Bristol and New York.
Nimbus Owners' Club members were given the opportunity to enter the Topsail prize draw of two top prizes of £200 and further prizes of £150 and £100 off their next insurance premium.
Guests were serenaded by Bristol's Frampton Shanty men, an 11 strong group singing traditional sea shanties.
A big congratulations to both the Jubilee Sailing Trust and the Nimbus Owners Club on their anniversaries, a great recognition milestone of all of the work and support they provide.
