RECEPTION FOR SIR ROBIN KNOX – JOHNSTON CBE RD*
- 21st April 2019
- 18:00 - 20:00
SUNDAY APRIL 21st – 50 years on.
Background. In early January The Commodore received a note from Sir Robin Knox-Johnston saying that he had so enjoyed the Golden Globe Reception given by the Club in June 2018 that he wondered whether we would consider giving another this year to commemorate 50 years since his return to Falmouth in 1969. He did however stipulate that this time he and his flotilla would expect to pay for their own beer!
His plan is to gather a flotilla from The Clipper Fleet, The Cruising Association and the Little Ship’s Club, all of which have very strong connections with him, to sail west on the 18th and to arrive in St Mawes on Sunday 21st April (Easter Sunday), prior to a formal entrance into Falmouth in Suhaili the following day, exactly 50 years on.
