Viking boat Launch

The boat launch took place as announced. This is what organiser Gill Young has to say:

“It was as glorious sunny day at Richmond and Sophia did us proud – she was really fantastic with the children in particular, who dressed up in Viking costume to lead the procession down to the waters edge, most of whom was from her father’s (Rev peter Myles of St John the Baptist Church Isleworth) Sunday School!! It was a great moment for them to meet “lady penelope”! Sophia named the boat and later went on the boat for its maiden voyage!”

According to the press release, Sophia said:

“This is definitely one of the most unusual launches I’ve been to! When my father & David asked me to name the boat I was delighted to take on the role – the boat’s name is perfect – the golden figurehead is really stunning. I’m so impressed by David’s dedication – it just shows what can be achieved if you pursue your personal dreams! I’m sure that many watching today will be inspired by his example!”
