A day of two halves for this charter. The morning was a bit dull and cloudy up until lunch. The afternoon gradually brightened giving us some sun to make up for the gloom of the morning.

A big thankyou must go to Matt Fielding for putting this charter together and for the Crew Kev and Dave. Not forgetting the Guards who worked hard all day and anyone else involved at the SVR for giving us a great day out.
