Welcome aboard as a guest of HMS Medusa, an iconic 1943 Harbour Defence Motor Launch. The Telecommunications Officer will show you how telephony and technology were used to save thousands of lives in WW2, and reveal her history as one of the ‘ships that saved D-Day’, as well as her more recent role in the 2017 film ‘Dunkirk’.
Cowes Week is the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world, with 40 daily sailing races and 8,000 competitors. And from the HMS Medusa you’ll get a close up view of the action. Luncheon will be served at Trinity’s at The Lightship.
