Waverley 04 Oct 2013 030The Classic Annual Evening Cruise onboard the last Sea-Going Paddle Steamer in the World, The “Waverley”,  took place last Friday – one of the most lovely weather-wise evenings ever experienced!

RINA London Branch with its spearheads Jonathan Morley and Peter Jenkins  and over 80 new and old faithful supported this noble cause for the classic cruise down the River Thames sailing through the floodlit Tower Bridge, gone past Canary Wharf, The Millennium Dome nd through the famous modern landmark – at least of its time, the Thames Flood Barrier.

More dance this year in the lounge bar under the music of the Copperrail Jazz band and ore dance on the main deck! Spotted many faithful from the IMO and IMarEst as well as from Lloyd’s Register.

The “Waverley” was built in 1947 and its in its 65th  year of service and its worth joining the “Friends of Waverley” in supporting her maintenance and continuous trading. By becoming a Friend of “Waverley”  you will be making a real difference to keeping “Waverley” sailing.  You will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped preserve a piece of maritime heritage and you will be supporting  a world class attraction.  Hope to see you next year on board!
