Cruise Notes: Third day of Admirals Cruise weekend and today off out to the wreck of the USS Richard Montgomery. Departed from Rochester and ran to Chatham Marina to pick up Andy & Anita who were our guests for the day. On picking them up we motored back to Rochester for the start of the cruise in company with some 30+ boats. On heading out of the estuary we lowered our ensign and saluted the wreck site of HMS Bulwark, collected our flotilla pennant from the Mayor and hove to at the Montgomery wreck site for a short service over the VHF radio (the sea here was very confused & rough). Then headed into Stangate Creek where we dropped anchor and enjoyed lunch in the sunshine. Departed Stangate and headed directly back to Chatham Marina.

Saluting the wreck site of H.M.S Bulwark in the Medway Estuary.
