HMS Tracker at Bosham Quay
HMS Tracker made history at the weekend when it became the first active warship to visit Bosham Quay.
The visit was short because of the tides but there was enough time for a large number of guests and cadets to be welcomed aboard by Lieutenant Thomas Reed and his skilled crew.
Bosham Sailing Club and the Manor of Bosham were honoured to both be presented with the ship's Crest which will be proudly displayed in the bar.
With Bosham Junior Week fast approaching, it is now time for any trophy winners of Junior Week 2021 to return their trophies to the BSC office engraved and polished.
Please can everything be returned by Friday 5th August at the latest.
