Nights on the Ernest shackleton

The Ernest Shackleton.


A night at the races for charity. We raised over £400 for the charity event. The spectators involved a sumo wrestler, a couple of jockeys, an Arabian sheik, the Queen, a vet and many other horse going characters all dressed in their finery.

A win at last !! One of two that was achieved on the night!!

The horses in all their glory get ready to cross the finish line.


The doctor enjoying a relaxing moment at the cocktail evening. Not everyone had brought along their favourite shirts for the occasion but the doctor did not disappoint.

More cocktails at hand, James the Halley chippy with Dave the met fid. Mixing of drinks is definitely not a good idea aboard a floating vessel in the southern seas.


A civilised wine and cheese evening that carried on until the early hours of the morning.

Hi Neil,
Hope you have a happy, healthy and certainly a very different Christmas! Try to avoid seals who like to give 'love bites'
