On the 18th July the choir donned their sailors’ outfits and got their sea legs ready for a voyage of discovery on the Copper Jack, sailing up the River Tawe. This social event was planned by two of our second sopranos, Avril and Julie and after the obligatory photo with the parrot…. we set sail on a lovely evening cruise.
A nautical-themed quiz was held on the first part of the journey followed by a buffet and drinks from the bar. Everyone was relaxed after the hard work the choir had put in for the successful annual concert and now it was time to chill-out! Not only had Julie and Avril put on the food, they had organised entertainment too! Rebecca and John, Julie’s daughter and son-in law are both very talented performers and entertained us all with sea shanties and a communal sing-song. It made the night. We arrived back in the marina and some of us diverted to the local wine bar for a last rum!!
