There will be a Victorian Fleet review again, we'll all try to get there for one of the days to get the most on the water.


So come on Victorian sailors get your battleships, cruisers and TBDs out there once again :-))
HMS Prince George will be joining them this year!


And we want to see members having a go at beating Phil on the Straight Running, its not difficult I'm told! :D
