Rainbow Warrior 3!

Rainbow Warrior 3

Rainbow Warrior 3

It was wonderful coming past Canary Wharf and catching our first glimpse of the Rainbow Warrior. We managed to pose for some pictures outside in the fading daylight before meeting up with the Waveney gang and being welcomed by John Sauven and the captain. We felt really appreciated, especially when Issy Griffin introduced herself and said her own special thanks.

We were shown the boat by a couple of volunteers who had already done a long day, but they put up with all our questions and even sneaked us below to see the engine room and galley. Best was the excellent talk in the ‘control room’ which had a comfortably normal looking chart table and steering wheel among all the high tech controls.

We met up in the Gun with Richard Martin from HQ, over a drink and delicious canapés a la docklands like truffle risotto,  for another little discussion about future Waveney fund raising possibilities Whatever will we do next!!?
