In memory of Pete Clay

You will have read in our February Newsletter that one of our founding Trustees, Pete Clay, sadly died in January. Without Pete pushing for the ship to be built in the first place we wouldn’t have this amazing project so it is only fitting that his drive and enthusiasm are remembered and celebrated. To do this we will dedicate ‘Frame 1’ in Pete’s memory. This is the first V-shaped frame in the bow of the ship and will always be the first part of the vessel to arrive at its destination which echoes the way that Pete pushed the project forward. This is likely to be fitted early next year when we will have a special dedication ceremony and once again celebrate the life of a great friend.

Thanks go to everyone who contributed to Pete’s memorial fund which raised over £4000 for the project.
