Operation Dynamo 75th: 20-25 May 2015

Dunkirk celebrationsIt had been a long time in the planning but finally the time had come to congregate in Dunkirk to commemorate the evacuation from the ‘beaches’ of British, French and Belgian soldiers in June 1940.   8 boats under the Broom Owners ‘flag’ finally reached Dunkirk – Lady Martina, Ikon, Erika, Santa Cruz, Lady Maurette and Flying Visit crossed from Ramsgate on 21 May to meet up with Sinemora and Bonnie Rose who had already arrived in port.   Boisterous Mistress and Kohaku were unable to join in because of family illness; Kelsie Jane was caught by bad weather in Eastbourne.  David Broad took over the role of coordinating the group at the last minute; thanks David and thanks Kelston for all the hard work you and Jackie did to set it up.. There were at least ten Broom boats with other clubs and as individuals in the support fleet.
