Westerly Owners Association Ryder Challenge Plate

Ryder Challenge Plate

During a conversation with Thomas while we were on our tour, we learnt that we had been awarded the WOA Rayner Challenge plate for our ‘Epic Voyage’.  This is the Association’s oldest and most prestigious accolade awarded by the association to anyone they consider has completed a voyage that stretches them and their crew well beyond their usual cruising plans.

Our names have been engraved on it

We were very flattered to be awarded this and touched that people at home still think about us.  Our thanks go to the committee that considered us, Dick Leedham for paying our subs and accepting the award on our behalf and to Liz Roberts for sending me the photos.
