Fleet Base Perth - Sail Day Monday 4 June 2018

Postby PearlHarbour52 » 06 Jun 2018 21:48

After the sad passing of our friend, which we laid to rest on Saturday. FBP held an impromptu sailing day on Monday as it being WA Day, it seemed appropriate.

The weather gods were shining on us as the conditions were perfect with overcast clouds and no wind, giving the perfect long wake of the boats as they sail past you.

Nigel brought his ever faithful HMAS Toowoomba to undertake the above water weeding and Pete brought down his USS Skipjack to undertake the below water weeding.

Glen brought down his ever impressive HMS Hermes which has now started to embark its air detachments of 2 Harriers and a Seaking. It will look even more impressive with all the aircraft embarked as she was in the Falklands War.
