2019 marks the 40th anniversary since Waverley first visited the Bristol Channel and Ilfracombe.
The Bristol Channel Branch covers the whole of the Bristol Channel. The branch membership is spread across the South and West Midlands, South Wales and the West Country.
Waverley completed all five Bristol Channel sailings between Friday 31st August and Tuesday 4th September with excellent loadings.
The Bristol Channel Branch are pleased to announce three new meetings in their area, together with one change, over the next four months.
Tom Eveson recently filmed some High Definition video footage on a day trip from Clevedon to Ilfracombe.
To keep members updated on Balmoral’s progress, extra meetings will be held on Saturday 17th May and Saturday 12th July.
You will have read in the current edition of Paddle Wheels the article about Balmoral written by Nick James. The proposals for static use in Bristol this year are still under discussion, and we hope for an outcome shortly.
The timetable for Waverley’s Bristol Channel sailings is now available on the Waverley Excursions website.
Members will no doubt be interested in the following announcement that was posted on the PSPS web site on 13th March.
Some sad news that has just been brought to my attention, for anyone who may remember Captain Phil Power.
