    Congratulations to everyone and especially to Chris.

    Do you fancy a week of volunteering beside a picturesque loch working on one of the most iconic steam vessels still in service? 

    SBA Member Adrian Greco has been speaking to the General Manager of the SWS management company and has a suggestion to Members of the SBA if they would like to lend a hand.

    In the News & and Events tab, visible when you are logged-in, you will find a link to an extensive description of the plan.  You can contact Adrian directly to find out more - you can email him or find his phone number in the members' register (log in and look in the directory of members on the Members' page).

    As you should know we have set up a WhatsApp group for SBA members, and we have 20-some members signed up. You can sign up for the group via the links on the home page... however...

    I (as the group admin) am having trouble adding some applicants, and there are (I think) two reasons for this:

    1: you have to have installed the WhatsApp app on your mobile phone before I can add you to the group (i.e. before you apply), and that phone number is the one you need to add in your profile as "mobile phone".

    2: you have to give the app all the permissions it asks for on your phone, in order for me to add you.... missing permissions means no entry - sorry these are WhatsApp's rules...

    So, if you have applied and have not been added, please check the above two items, as without these being done there is nothing I can do - sorry.

    PS - the processing at this end is VERY "manualmatic" (circa 10 minutes each!!!), so please apply slooowwwlllyyy..... :-)

    s'TEA’m Party 2021

    Windermere Jetty Museum

    Saturday 11th September 2021

    Let’s make this again an afternoon to remember with as many boats as possible joining SL Shamrock and other boats at Windermere Jetty Museum for Afternoon Tea served from Shamrock followed by steaming with Osprey around Bowness Bay and Belle Isle on her final steam of the day.

    Full details on Events Page.

    The damage to Shamrock has now been repaired, with two new cabin windows and woodwork repairs. The opportunity was also taken to replace a cracked pane in the engine skylight.

    Shamrock has sustained minor damage after a collision involving an anchor jutting out over the side of a moored boat.

    The damage consists of two broken cabin windows and some shallow scrapes on the surrounding woodwork.

    Repairs are in hand: templates for the glass have been made and suitable wood found for the other parts. We expect to have her fully operational in time for the 50th Anniversary Rally.
