A Merry Time at the Latest Noss Social
Thank you to those who attended our latest social on Saturday 9 September – despite the rain and strong winds, it was a great opportunity for berth holders to meet and enjoy some well-known shanties, such as Wild Rover and Drunken Sailor performed by the Nauti Buoys band.
Geoffrey Morton- Haworth, a berth holder at Noss on Dart Marina attended the morning and said: “ Just a note to thank everyone involved with the Nauti Buoys shanty concert on Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The band gave us songs like Rolling Home, Spanish Ladies and Drunken Sailor... and my favourite A Rovin' (Maid of Amsterdam) complete with blond wig and bawdy verses! We were soon clapping and singing along. A light shower was a reminder that these were all-weather working songs not just karaoke for the pub. Noss proved a surprisingly appropriate venue, overlooking the Naval College jetty with a square-rigged tall ship moored alongside.
