Port Navas Regatta

28 July 2007

Sat. 28 July 2007 was the day of the Port Navas Regatta Family Fundraising Day, where the Helford MC Members Group for the first time decided to have a stall to further the public awareness of the HVMCA. The gazebo was erected in the morning with our new sign and the table was prepared with HVMCA Events programmes, the new information leaflets, Fal & Helford Harbour Guide books, DEFRA Fishing Regulations and Eelgrass postcards ready for the 4 o’clock start which came on time but so did the rain!Our team of volunteers manfully stayed until the prize-giving at the end of the afternoon having spent 3 hours watching the rain dowse everything and everyone whilst cheerfully greeting the bedraggled public who understandably had a limited interest in enquiring about the HVMCA. Not the most successful foray into the public domain – but we were there! David Nightingale – Chairman Members Group
